ALAH was born out of the artistic partnership between musician-composer Lily Desmond and dancer-choreographer Alejandro Aristizábal. This US-Colombian duo was born in 2017 when Desmond sought to bring dance into the DIY music scene in New York City. Their current body of work is forceful, lyrical and raw; and is centered on themes surrounding mental health and the journey to self acceptance. Using dance as a focal point for narrative development of character-driven stories, both Desmond and Aristizabal want to invite the audience to the personal and emotional world of the artists through shared lived experiences, using the body as a shared vehicle and sound as the immersion. They strive to create an experience where dance and music, dancers and the singer, become inextricable.
