PRINCESS NOKIA is a musical collaboration between Destiny Ortiz and Christopher Lare. The pair met through a mutual friend and began to working together in early 2013. Looking to build a new genre, while embracing existing subgenres, PRINCESS NOKIA has created a neo-futuristic sound that is both relevant and avant garde.

PRINCESS NOKIA released their 1st independent album, "METALLIC BUTTERFLY", in May of 2014. The album has since received critical acclaim in both the underground and mainstream. Media outlets Fader and Vice both gave [album] rave reviews.

Their sound comes inspired by 90's Rave, Drum & Bass, with a nod to the raw New York & U.K. underground. "METALLIC BUTTERFLY" offers a diverse fusion of Trip Hop, Jungle, Adult Contemporary, Cute-Core, Grime, R&B & Afro Latin House. Latent, yet lyrically honest, with a creative approach their music continues to set them apart and attract a rapidly growing fanbase.

Reigning in downtown art cool with mainstream appeal PRINCESS NOKIA has been quickly gaining the recognition of various record labels, both major and independent. Recent collaborations include Red Bull, MTV World, and NPR ALT Latino. Kmart has currently licensed the song DRAGONS and is now airing it commercially.
