An experimental post-industrial duo, formed by Ivana Ray Singh and Maria Gatasanta, key figures of the Barcelonese underground scene and the founders of labels such as A Love Supreme, Màgia Roja and Shaddock among others.
His music is channeled by rhythm, sometimes minimal and lysergic, other crushing and hypnotic, guided by a voice that invokes and banishes at will.

Today, as a Kyiv-based DJ and musician, Burning Woman draws inspiration from various sources and constantly develops her own sound.

Her works aim to blur the definitions of (un)intentional sound and music. The many noises and tones of De Lara’s live performances are sourced from autoharps, contact mics, vocals and loops, amongst other tools.
