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.
Brilla will be performing at Le Garage Café at midnight on Friday as part of JunoFest.
