hai Adelaida

Happy *almost* Summer Hai Society! With the sun shining on a semi-regular basis, and disposable BBQs beginning to hit the shelves, we thought we'd take a trip via the Mediterranean Sea to say Hai to experimental musician and performer, Adelaida. Having studied at Prestigious London Art College, Central Saint Martins, in 2020 Adelaida returned to her native, Barcelona, and began to pursue a musical livelihood, building on an ever-growing repertoire of ethereal compositions. Performing with the sounds of Spring to accompany her angelic tones, and having carefully crafted her whimsical performance style, complete with candle lit sets and antique inspired styling, Adelaida offers a celestial form of escapism to her audience.

Having released her first single, Primavera, earlier in the year, and with the next single set for release tomorrow (pre-save here), Adelaida gave us a peak inside her dreamy existence, as she played dress up in some of the sunniest pieces from our latest collection…

Hi... or should we say Hai!

Hola pajarito sin cola! (◕ᴗ◕✿)

What do you do?

I write and sing songs! I also swim a lot!

Where do you call home?

It's hard for me to give a straight answer to that question... i felt consistently homesick for a long time.

Right now, i'd say I live in the full moon

/// feel most at home when it's sunny.

What are the biggest inspirations to your work?

Many, many, many... Bell Hooks, Leonora Carrington, Vera Chytilová, Chavela Vargas, Clarice Lispector, Begoña Egurbide, the list goes on and on and on...

Can you recall your dream job as a child?

I wanted to be a mermaid on my dreamiest days - i feel like i've managed...

Dogs or cats?

ฅ^•ﻌ•^ฅ forever a cat woman

A song that you could listen to every day and never get tired of?

My approach to music is very obsessive and i tend to get periodically tired of all the music i listen to...

but today i'd say [Ta-Tu] by COBRACORAL

Sweet or savoury?

uuuuuhhh --- pistaccio ice cream and croquetas - how could i ever choose one? please don't make me!

Favourite restaurant in the world?

Terra Alta in Raval, Barcelona (my favourite croquetas by the amazing Rosa)

What will be the sound of your summer?

Hopefully birds!

What’s your most treasured possession?

My grandma's clothes. They tend to accompany me during my gigs, like a secret omen.

Where do you go when you want to escape?

Under the sea - there, I am always protected

Favourite vintage/second hand store in the world?

The charity shops in the Scottish borders

What are your hopes and dreams for the rest of the year?

Releasing more and more music, playing in magical places, learning, learning, learning, laughing, laughing, laughing, crying, crying, crying, singing, singing, singing

Where are you going to take your Hai pieces next?

The red shoes will walk me through the hot summer...

let's see where they take me!
