Malika Tirolien is a powerful stage performer and singer-songwriter, drawing influences from Jazz, R&B, and the Caribbean (Guadalupe). She 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. Leav-ing 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 Jazz project, The Kalmunity Vibe Collective, and the Hip-Hop fused soul group Groundfood. All of her life’s influences can be felt as Malika moves from Caribbean vocals and rhythms to Soul and Jazz, to urban Montreal’s take on Hip-Hop.
