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 and latest release, Higher – it 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.

She has toured over 20 countries with Bokanté. Two brilliant albums from the band have already earned them worldwide acclaim and a Grammy nomination. Tirolian’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. Malika Tirolien’s soaring voice immediately grabs your attention. Her well-crafted compositions present effusive emotions with fresh takes on various genres, infused with a deep knowledge of jazz. Her love, passion and respect for music can be felt in each song and through her sparkling authenticity.

“Powerhouse vocals - Alluring compositions…” JAZZ TIMES (US)

“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 (US)

“'High soul', soul-jazz with robust rhythms in line with the works of famed Meshell Ndegeocello, neo-soul (on the superb tracks Better and Dreamin’) and rap (Sisters) add depth and dynamism to this audacious album.” LE DEVOIR (CA)

"The…arrangements convey depth and lightness… This album "Higher" is a real natural phenomenon. Fundamental, visionary, radical.”– (TR) Kult Komplott (Germany)
