Esquire's Artist of 2018 Layla Kardan Fuels Outcry For Global Equality

Having gained support from some of the largest and most respected brands and performed on major UEA stages such as Emirates Airline Jazz Festival, Art Dubai, and the Dubai International Film Festival, Layla Kardan has now returned, collaborating with one of Saudi Arbia's most exciting and upcoming fashion designers, Arwa Al Banawi on new single ‘The Suitable Woman’. The track was produced by rising middle eastern star, ROBN.

The new track 'The Suitable Woman' is a representation of a generation of Middle Eastern women rising up and fighting for gender equality in the middle east, encapsulating what Arwa's brand is all about. Arwa felt that Layla was the right fit for the project as she represents the essence of the suitable woman in her own plight. Celebrating the power found within through introspection and personal experience, Layla marries her smoky soulful voice with pop, jazz, Middle Eastern and R&B rhythms and melodies, Layla’s sound is evocative and achingly poignant – an international star with a global message.
