“Whether it’s on this big stage or an intimate club, Tirolien’s powerful commanding voice has incredible range, a warm tone, and remarkable control…” – Noisey Vice
Montreal-based Malika Tirolien is a remarkable vocalist, musician, songwriter and producer from Guadeloupe. She is garnering international attention with her creative collaborations, and 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, and showcases a new genre called “high soul,” mixing R&B, soul, hip hop and jazz. She has toured over 20 countries with her band, Bokanté, and 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. Tirolien’s love, passion, and respect for music can be felt in each song, as well as her sparkling authenticity. Caulder Nash keyboards, Philippe L’Allier guitar, Jean-Michel Frédéric synthesizer/bass, Harvey Bien-Aimée drums
