Lara Dabbagh (born December 2, 2002) is a Moroccan-born Australian singer-songwriter-rapper. She is also well-known on social media for her sweet, soulful singing. Lara’s love of music and self-expression was instilled in her at a young age, and she is now establishing herself as a dynamic new force out in Sydney.

Individuality and faith in one’s own past go a long way toward determining one’s future path – this is a credo that has guided Lara’s artistic journey thus far. Lara’s upbringing was marked by cultural vitality, distinct aural and aesthetic influences, and, most importantly, a strong sense of self and family, owing to her Moroccan and Lebanese ancestry.

While some people prefer to avoid the characteristics that make them unique, Lara has embraced them wholeheartedly and enthusiastically, incorporating them into her music. Lara’s brand of contemporary R&B embodies what it’s like to be a young multi-cultural creative in Australia, whether through rhythms, vocal progressions, or production intricacies. “Embrace your culture, who you are, and what you do,” she extols.
