The child of an Algerian father and Finnish mother, Manna was born between two cultures. She has a unique position from which to observe both, being a foreigner on both grounds. This informs the way that she lives her whole life, how she walks into a room, how she sings a melody. She is an in-betweener, constantly changing, constantly evolving.

Manna has a back story that lesser singers would die for. Her previous record was produced by famed producer Alain Johannes (Queens of The Stone Age). Mark Lanegan sang on her own composed song Wishing Well. She has also guested, sharing vocals with Jim Reid on The Jesus & Mary Chain's Just Like Honey.

Manna brings an unique Finnish performance to Superwood as a foretaste of her upcoming first Finnish album.
