I am Dalai Dunce. I’m a 19 year old poëtic storyteller who uses rap and singing to share my creative concepts.
All my work is me expressing my emotions through sound & lyrics. My name originates from the Dalai Lama (I have a peaceful nature) and the English word Dunce (I’ve been very misunderstood throughout my life). I was born and raised in the Netherlands but I also have Palestinian and Indonesian roots.
My music is a variation of modern hip-hop though I try to go in a more alternative direction in the future. My song Other Side (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ATKtTq2kdL4) kinda captures this image. Somewhere this summer I will release an EP about the essentials of life (6 tracks), called Essence EP, in collaboration with my long time friend and producer DETA.
