“This album is about being black, being trans, and being African on foreign land. It's about the tension, splitting, mania, psychosis, and depression that work like a symphony of Bop It!s to keep me alive. It’s cyclical. It's meant to be played in bed, and then at the club, and then walking down the street, and then back in bed. It’s also about making jokes with yourself to hide what’s meant to be kept for just you. Maya Angelou says to keep a room in your heart just for god. My room is full of rage, questions, confusion, and pain - I’m trying to get it clean and pristine, baby!”
YATTA is an interdisciplinary artist, digipoet, and musician. They use incantations born of loop pedal drones, channeled screams, and improvised poetry to explore connections between psychosis, prayer, and presence.
'WAHALA' is the 2nd album by YATTA.

One of the most essential experimental albums out there today! Elements of dance, jazz, and psychedelic music are mixed together in a way that’s incredibly thoughtful, disorienting, and mind blowing. Intriguing field recordings + personal voice messages are weaved in between tracks, which altogether creates an album that encapsulates grief + personal history in a way that’s never been done before in music.
