Through jazz, electronic, avant-garde and  improvisation, Soraya creates her own vocal style from British and Swiss background. She plays mostly in France and Switzerland and produced her first quartet album « Undividualism » in 2011 on Unit Records, then two other albums with the band ZATAR in 2016, and 2018. She collaborates with Elvett (electro-soul) since 2016.

Her most recent project is TRAVELING NAT KING COLE, a voice-piano duet with Michel Wintsch, and with the band WABJIE.
