Lili Refrain

Lili Refrain is a multi-instrumentalist, composer and performer based in Rome, Italy. Her solo project was founded in 2007. She uses electric guitar, vocals, percussions and synthesizers, overlapping them in real time through loop stations. The atmosphere she evokes cover a wide swath of sonic territory that combines minimalist, folk, psychedelic, blues, metal, lyrical opera textures, without using any computer or pre-recorded tracks. Her songs are embedded with ritualistic energies and her live performances are a haunting and cathartic experience that lead the listener through the maze of an unforgettable act beyond the boundaries of any genre.

Lili Refrain has released 5 albums, and is currently on tour promoting her last record: “MANA” (2022 – Subsound Records).

She landed on the stages of the best european festivals such as Roadburn, Hellfest, Desertfest, Dunk!fest, AM Fest and many more and will embark on a full European tour in 2022/2023 opening for Heilung.

” ‘MANA’ is a trip towards the unknown, and it’s dedicated to those, who in life had to face it. Mana is a hope, it is a little gift shared with anyone who needs strength, and whom just like me, perceives this historic moment as something that is deeply sick, to totally overturn so the healing process can begin. ” (Lili Refrain)
