Born and raised on the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe, Malika Tirolien is a powerful stage performer, singer, and songwriter. Malika played the lead in Cirque Du Soleil’s La Nouba and has been featured alongside such artists as Lara Fabian and Alain Jean-Marie. Her voice caught the ears of Michael League (of Snarky Puppy fame) and she was featured as one of eight vocalists on the Grammy-winning album Family Dinner. Malika’s newest release - Sur La Voie Ensoleilée (‘On the High Road’) - speaks from a positive and determined worldview. Whether singing soul, jazz, or rapping in Guadeloupean creole, Malika’s voice is delicate, precise, and compelling throughout.
