Nalu means ‘one with the waves’. Nalu is she who flows freely, who comes across life’s challenges and either crashes through them or meanders around them – depending on the magnitude of energy that fuels her. Nalu is a producer (under the alias, Luvdust), singer, songwriter, guitarist and pianist. A feeler, listener and a lover.
She uses R’nB, soul, acoustic and lo-fi sounds to explore themes of womxnhood, sexuality, love, lust, heartbreak and peace. At the heart of it all, Nalu wishes to tell organic stories. Inspired by many powerful womxn of colour, Nalu follows suit in her music by using it to express and liberate others, and most importantly, herself. Her music is bred by her spirituality and materialises through 7th chord progressions, three-part harmonies, falsetto interludes and spoken-word verses.
