Safe Ground

Filipino-American singer-songwriter Sandrayati releases her intimate debut album exploring love, identity and courage.

Sandrayati’s folk-inspired debut album welcomes you into her beautiful world, with mesmerising subtle vocals, folk-inspired guitar, synth, and electronic sounds. Having grown up in an international community in Indonesia Sandrayati’s global influences show on this album with two tracks in Indonesian, with nods to her activism for indigenous rights. Safe Ground was recorded in isolation in Iceland in collaboration with Ólafur Arnalds, far from the topics she was singing about.

“Crafting the songs in this album created a space soft enough to fall into, revealing the intimate pulse of my heart and nourishing the bravery to grow into new earth. As I landed, the songs themselves taught my voice how to nurture this emerging world. Slowly they, along with the many hands of a new community with gratitude to Ólafur Arnalds created a home for me, and now hopefully for you: an offering of Safe Ground.” – Sandrayati.
