Deradoorian


Angel Deradoorian is well known as the former bassist, keyboardist and vocalist for Dirty Projectors, her startling vocals often giving an extra edge to the group’s output. She has also been a member of Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks, sang on Flying Lotus’ “Siren Song,” and has collaborated and performed with Vampire Weekend, Björk, Matmos, Stephen O’Malley, the Roots and many others.

Deradoorian should, however, be much better known as a brilliant artist in her own right. Her first EP, ‘Mind Raft’ (2009) and her debut long player ‘The Expanding Flower Planet’ are intriguing , otherworldly releases that bring to mind the likes of Alice Coltrane, Terry Riley or Dorothy Ashby.
