Odelly’s sound is a contemporary mixture of pop, trap, hip-hop and traditional instrumental music from North Africa. Having been born in France and raised in Jerusalem, the Israeli singer-songwriter, saxophonist and pianist mixes languages, cultures and traditions into a unique formula. Traditional Arabic melodies sung by her father in Hebrew gain new life in her own music, in which she also often sings in English and French. Odelly plays soprano saxophone and keyboard, combining everything using a loop station. She continues to gain more and more fans, as shown by her million-plus streams on Spotify.

Odelly is awarded the 2023 co-creation residency in Berlin, Germany, and Tel Aviv, Israel, under which she collaborates with Berlin-based Jonas Schilling.
