Shakura S’Aida: an international artist who calls Canda home:
A new double Cd recording sets the time


Born in Brooklyn, New York. Raised in Switzerland. A long-time Canadian who lives in Toronto.  That’s Shakura S’Aida, a truly international artist whose involvement in the Canadian music scene has been ongoing for the almost 25 years. Along the way, she has enriched the jazz, blues and classic R&B communities with her soulful voice, enthusiastic personality and commitment to her deep soul music.

Now she’s released Time, a double CD that gives her growing international audience tastes of her different musical approaches to blues, soul and rock and roll.

And Shakura takes her music wherever there’s an audience  in the past two years alone she has performed in the Caribbean, Moscow, Dubai, Romania, Switzerland, Canada, the United States, Australia, Austria, Italy, Germany, France, Macedonia, Switzerland and helped organize a festival in Kigali, the capital of Rwanda.

Whether she’s speaking Swiss-German, French or English, Shakura instantly connects with her audience — and at the same time richly demonstrates the multiculturalism that Canada prides itself on.



Talking her time: A new double CD

Time, her new double CD, was released in April 2012 by ElectroFi, a Toronto-based label with distribution around the world.  This third album was two years in the making, following the 2010 release of Brown Sugar on the German label Ruf Records. Her well-received independent debut, Blueprint, helped establish her a major figure on the scene and Time promises to continue that tradition by starting off the year by garnering four different national and international music award nominations:
