“SEW” MUSIC VIDEO RELEASE
@ BOBARDS (4328 saint Laurent)
Malika Tirolien was raised in an artistic environment – Her grandfather inspired her with poems, her grandmother was a pianist, and her father was a self taught multi-instrumentalist. This background shaped her will to become an artist, and she began singing as a teenager.
Leaving her home in Guadeloupe for the University of Montreal, Malika studied jazz and quickly became a part of the Montreal jazz scene as part of the Kalmunity Vibe Collective, and the Hip-Hop fused soul group Groundfood.
A powerful stage performer, Malika Tirolien took the lead in Cirque Du Soleil’s La Nouba and has appeared with respected artists Lara Fabian and Alain Jean-Marie. She has performed in many international festivals around the world (Montreal Jazz festival, Moers Jazz Festival, Terre de Blues, Burlington jazz festival, among others) and opened for well known artists such as Richard Bona or Steel Pulse.
One of her performance caught the eyes and ears of Michael League of Snarky Puppy and she was invited to perform as one of eight vocalists on the Grammy winning release Snarky Puppy’s Family Dinner.
Her performance closes the now legendary performance with the powerful version of Malikas song (written with Frederic Varre) Im Not The One.
Her stage presence, her precise and soulful delivery, her attitude, and her strength absolutely captivate the audience.
Described as a “real revelation” by Le Devoir, Malika Tirolien is certainly an artist to remember
