Malika Tirolien is a remarkable vocalist, musician, songwriter and producer from Guadeloupe, now living in Montreal. She is garnering international attention with her creative collaborations.
Her latest release HIGHER is the second in a tetralogy featuring earth,air, fire and water themes. It is a shining example of afro-futuristic styling, co-produced with Bokanté creator Michael League. The album showcases a new genre called "high soul", mixing R&B, soul, hip hop and jazz to create the soundtrack of a psychedelic trip from anger to forgiveness.
Malika’s soaring voice immediately grabs your attention and her well-crafted compositions present effusive emotions and fresh takes on various genres, from urban to soul, the whole infused with a deep knowledge of jazz. Her love, passion and respect for music can be felt in each song and her sparkling authenticity.
She has toured over 20 countries with Bokanté. Two brilliant albums from the band have already earned them worldwide acclaim and a Grammy nomination. Tirolien’s electrifying performance on I’m not the one (1.9M+ YouTube views) is a prime track on the Grammy-winning album by Snarky Puppy, inspiring countless covers worldwide.
