Camellia Boutros is a multi-instrumentalist and producer based in San Francisco, and her music draws on her experiences growing up on the West Coast and in the Arab world. Having performed with various Bay Area bands, such as Inspector Gadje, Mayya, Mild Universe, and Mission Delirium, Camellia approaches the music she writes with an eclectic touch, taking to the stage with a custom modified fretless 12-string electric guitar that enables her to write and perform music using the quarter-tone Maqam system. Psychedelic rock, folk, jazz, Arab melodies, and story-telling vocals can all be found in her set and on her first solo album, Refuge.
