Event Description

Toronto-based East African singer-songwriter Witch Prophet creates a soundscape of vocal layers, loops, raps, and harmonies on a bed of hip-hop, jazz, and soul-inspired beats produced by her wife and business partner, SUN SUN. Think Erykah Badu meets Lauryn Hill meets Portishead. She finds depth and connection in creating a music as a portal for self-growth, as she navigates and better understands her cultural and queer identity. Three years after the release of her Polaris Prize shortlisted 2020 album DNA Activation, returns to the spotlight with a new soul/adult contemporary LP Gateway Experience due May 2023. Witch Prophet has shared the stage with and opened for acts like Lido Pimienta, Sudan Archives, Tash Sultana, Snotty Nose Rez Kids and more. She has since released a deluxe edition of DNA Activation featuring remix tracks with rappers Stas THEE Boss and LATASHÁ. The video for her song Tesfay directed by Leah Vlemmiks was nominated for the 2021 Prism Prize and was an official selection at the 2021 Rhode Island International Film Festival as well as the 2021 SXSW Music Video awards. Tesfay was also nominated in the UKMVA’s Best International RnB/Soul video category alongside Beyoncé, Cardi B, Normani, The Weeknd, and Bryson Tiller.
