Producing music with a strong political and spiritual message, Daniel Elia encapsulates the trials and tribulations faced by the Melbourne South-Sudanese community, and what it means to be black in Australia. With an extensive background in dancing and touring, Elia was inspired by watching his favorite artists perform. At age 19, he began writing lyrics and recording his tracks on his laptop. It became apparent that his natural creativity and emotional intelligence was able to thrive through the creation of music.
Elia captivates his listeners with lyrical poetry and unique instrumentals. The recognition of his talent provided him with opportunities to perform at venues such as The Social Studio’s Block Party in 2015 and 2016, at hip-hop hub Laundry Bar and numerous community events.
