○ TIKA (Toronto)
TiKA is an artist, creator, activist. Classically-trained musician and performance artist, she is widely known for her work in a diverse range of projects, from her breakthrough role in Trey Anthony’s “‘da Kink in my Hair” to frequent appearances on MTV’s “The Aftershow,” to TiKA’s own “The Known Unknown,”. She’s also the force behind #Baregyal/Gyalcast (listed in The Fader as the #1 Canadian DIY Media Collective You Should Know).
Tika’s innate musical talent allows her to effortlessly create a safe space in a dangerous world for her audience. Her sound, heart and creativity are somehow able to transport the crowd while guiding them on a journey through her world, encouraging, nurturing, and guiding them in their search to better understand themselves. She is psychedelic and a hypnotist.
