Biography

Sylvi Ali has an eerie operatic voice that reminds one of Lisa Gerrard in swoops and depths. Her music is a dark and personal mixture of operatic arias, neo folk songs, and gothic ballads.
Classically trained in piano, Sylvi began experimenting with ambient/industrial electronic music in the late ‘80’s. In the mid “90’s she began to focus on vocals and more structured song writing. Sylvi has composed soundtracks for dance, theatre and cinema, providing music and soundtracks for the films & theatre pieces of Finnish artist Antero Alli. Her music CDs include “Too Near the Ghosts”, “Dream of the Blue Moth”, “Under a Shipwrecked Moon” and “A Hundred Birds”.

    Oh god, it's too sad - but I think "Vessel" is her weakest album to date, unfortunately. I really would like to say the opposite, but I can't. "Too Near the Ghosts" is still her best work and one of the most beautiful records I've ever heard.

    I just heard her a minute ago and I'm already trying to get my hands on all her music. It's absolutely gorgeous!

    I'm under spell of her voice. I've listened to "Dream of The Blue Moth" ...and I'm totally enchanted by the enigmatic and mystic feelings which flow from her songs. I'm surprised she isn't more recognizable, the beauty of her Art deserves even more.

    Oh god, I'm obsessed again, her work is so unbelievably beautiful! My heart can't decide whether I should die of grief or happiness when I listen to "Delarose"...

    Ah, yes - the play count... I listened to her about 550 times within the last two weeks, so that may be one reason...

    OH, A Hundred Birds! Yes yes, more - I need MORE! My goodness, I can't imagine how to live without her, now that I was presented with this just too precious gem. Thank you so much again, dear.

    MY god, I'm in love. This phantastic singer got me totally off guard again. Every time I listen to her I think I never will be able to listen to something else...
