Olivia Bouyssou Merilahti (born 25 February 1982 in Paris) is a Finnish-French singer and composer living in France. Her work has been compared to that of Björk, whom she cites as a major influence.
Having studied classical music in Helsinki, Merilahti gravitated to rock music, then jazz and electronic music. In 2004, during the writing of music from the movie Empire of the Wolves, she met Dan Levy, with whom she formed French indie rock band The Dø.
