Juno nominee Alysha Brilla performs at the News Café

Rising Tanzanian-Canadian soul-folk singer/songwriter Alysha Brilla, a 2014 Juno nominee, will join Free Press music writer Jen Zoratti at the News Café on Thursday at 2:30 p.m. for a chat about her nomination and her fresh sound.

Brilla's full-length debut, 2013's In My Head, is up for adult contemporary album of the year thanks to its seamless, sun-kissed blend of pop, world, jazz and blues. Brilla, who plays guitar, piano and djembe, weaves her Tanzanian heritage into her music; on the summertime jam Nobody she sings in Swahili.

Juno nominee Alysha Brilla performs at the Winnipeg Free Press News Café on Thursday afternoon. Her album In My Head was nominated for a 2014 Juno adult contemporary album of the year. Brilla will be back in Winnipeg April 30 at Pyramid Caberet.
