Risha is a follow up to her 2017 debut album Shamat (Beauty Spots), which she wrote and arranged. Releasing songs that have topped the indie charts across the Middle East and North Africa, Shamat explores complex shades of emotion, as she intricately covers themes of identity, escapism, fear, and love.
