Adela Mede is a Slovak-Hungarian musician and singer whose works explore themes of home and spiritual growth. She draws on a wide scope of influences and incorporates elements of minimalism, contemporary vocal techniques or Eastern European folklore into her work. Trilingual singing, field recordings, experimental electronics and vocal processing intertwine to create intimate, powerful compositions.
Her debut album ‘Szabadság’ was released to widespread critical acclaim. It was supported by The Wire, The Quietus, Dazed and NTS Radio, among others. In 2022 she toured across Europe, sharing stages with Claire Rousay and Grand River, presenting her work in Slovakia, Czech Republic, Hungary and Denmark.
“Ostensibly speaking, ‘Szabadság’, the debut album from Adela Mede, is an avant-garde/experimental composition record with a deep interest in voice.
Peel back the layers, and it’s also an art-pop record that reaches for the stars.” – Dazed
“It’s an exploration of what it means to find home across different countries, cities and languages, revelling in the dis/comfort of a life stretched across borders.” – The Wire
