Alia is the vocalist, flautist and organist for Blood Ceremony--a hard/occult/horror rock band based in Toronto. They've also aptly been called 'witch rock'.
She describes her style as 'what you might have worn to a Black Sabbath show in 1972', and talked about dressing for the stage and for the real world; including putting on a persona for performance.
She's a bell bottom, platform shoe enthusiast who looks to Tina Turner circa the late 60s; and Egyptian singer Umm Kulthum for her stage inspiration.
We talked about 1970s horror, Marianne Faithful, Jethro Tull and sufism!
Super fun, please listen and check out the show notes and pictures at
Blood Ceremony's most recent album is The Eldritch Dark.
