‘Human’ by Sevdaliza

‘Human’ by Sevdaliza

Iranian-born artist and singer, Sevdaliza, knows that art is powerful, provocative, controversial, and thought-provoking. Through her dark electronic beats, alluring vocals, and brooding lyrics, Sevdaliza not only captivates listeners, but also thrusts them into her unusual world. The video captures a distorted reality with the artist playing the role of a sultry heroine who commands the room full of masked men. Things are not what they seem as the camera pans out; it is revealed that Sevdaliza has hoofed legs.

Human is no doubt a commentary on beauty standards, greed, lust, and voyeurism. It is one thing to be objectified, and another to own one’s differences and become the center of attention. Watch the video below and be prepared to enter her trance.
