Her musical influences include Sade, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, India Arie, and Nina Simone. She hopes to bring awareness to the Western community about the wrong stereotypes of submissive and meek Middle Eastern women. Also, she plans to inspire women to pursue their dreams no matter what obstacles are placed in front of them.

For those of you who haven’t done so already, get acquainted with Kardan’s sound by checking out her “Saved” album via Spotify.


“‘Saved’ is an intimate, raw album which highlights Layla Kardan’s struggle against social conventions as a Middle Eastern woman. The songs express the vulnerability of being a woman. Also, they celebrate the power found within, through introspection, and breaking free from the expectations of Kardan’s community.”
