NOIA

Gisela Fullà-Silvestre records as NOIA, meaning “girl” in Catalan. Born and raised in Barcelona, Gisela was the only daughter of activist parents, and her father was part of a clandestine Communist party that fought against the Franco dictatorship. In addition to revolutionary discourse, music was a constant in Gisela’s home growing up: everything from French songs, Flamenco, Rumba, traditional Catalan music, Fado. Today, Gisela is a sound designer by trade, but also records electronic pop music that reflects and refracts her myriad musical and cultural influences — the traditional music of her native Spain, as well as dancehall and tropicalia radio, R&B and soul, and cinematic soundscapes. “NOIA is a reflection of all of my musical and artistic influences, but processed through my own voice,” says Gisela. “NOIA is who I am when no one’s looking.”
