Xolisa

Re-introducing the conventions of Hip Hop, as if it’s her duty to preserve them, Toronto-based emcee and producer, XOLISA, (pronounced “KO-Lee-Sah”) exudes an essence reminiscent of Hip Hop icons, A Tribe Called Quest, Mos Def, Talib Kweli and Nas.

 

Xolisa has dedicated her career to crafting a sound and executing a lyrical delivery that is technical, yet fluid; Boom Bap, yet futuristic; Abstract, yet all the while familiar as she continues to unapologetically spread her messages of self- love, resilience, political awareness and spirituality.

 

The Trinidadian-Canadian emcee is currently undertaking her first international tour in support of her debut, full-length, self-produced album, “And Gaps Do Lead To Bridges” (June 1, 2016), where she has already taken over stages within Canada, Australia and the U.S.A and continues on the 2017 leg of the tour, preparing to take the album to stages in the Caribbean, the Yukon Territories and more – delivering a jolting message on civil rights and her faith in humanity, moving the masses one city at a time!
