Bala Mandala is a multi-genre music producer, experimental music and visual artist. He was born in Northern Germany to Sri Lankan refugee’s who ran from civil war and social injustice. Growing up in a mixed community of Tamils and Europeans fueled the art and music Bala began making. Producing from the age of 10, he started recording with his father and later became known for his hip-hop beats in surrounding neighborhoods. For most of his career, he’s helped create and develop other artists. Bala's upcoming releases will be his first musical endeavor. His music has come to reflect the sounds of his Sri Lankan heritage, incorporating soul and ethereal vocal harmonies over buried tribal infused beats. He now resides in Highland Park, Los Angeles with his wife Aalok Bala collaborating creating music and visual art in their studio.
