Malika Tirolien Bio

From Guadeloupe, Grammy nominated vocalist, songwriter and producer Malika Tirolien is an explosive mix of creativity, dedication and genuineness. Her love, passion and respect for music can be felt in the sparkling authenticity of her performances in which her soaring voice immediately grabs your attention and her well-crafted compositions present effusive emotions through conscious and engaged lyrics.
Montreal based, she has been garnering international attention for almost a decade, striking with her electrifying performance on “I’m Not The One,” a prime track on the Grammy-winning album Family Dinner - Volume One by Snarky Puppy that has been inspiring countless covers worldwide.

She then released her self produced, composed and written debut album Sur La Voie Ensoleillée that reached #5 on the Canadian r&b/soul itunes charts before she became the lead singer and co-leader of super group Bokanté with mastermind producer and musician Michael League. The 9 piece band formed in 2016 has since then, toured in over 20 countries and released two critically acclaimed albums, the most recent one, “What Heat” (in collaboration with the Metropole Orkest) being nominated as best world album at the Grammys 2020.

It is best to “never change a winning team," so Malika Tirolien and Michael League are co-producing Malika’s sophomore solo album, the second installment of a tetralogy that started with her debut album. Set to be released February 26, 2021, the awaited album will showcase a new genre called “highsoul," mixing r&b, soul, hip hop and jazz to create the soundtrack of a psychedelic trip from anger to forgiveness.
