Meet AIVA, an empress of the electro-ethereal based in DC. From singer to visual artist to spiritual healer, her talents are as multi-layered as the mystical new age project she has fashioned.

As our #moderngirlcrush of the week, we asked to peek inside her creative process, her experiences working with a label based in London and what it means to be an independent artist of the new age.
