You may have spotted Brooklyn-born, Swiss-raised and Canadian-based Shakura S’Aida-pronounce her name “Shack-ooo-ra Sigh-ee-da”— performing at Festivals in Dubai, Europe, Australia, Rwanda or Russia, on the Legendary Blues Cruise; with her new symphony orchestra concert, “Blues in G Minor: 4 Women”, featuring the blues music of Etta James, Billie Holiday and Nina Simone, in her 4 woman tribute to Nina Simone, “The Nina Project” or acting in TV shows such as Lost Girl, Schitt’s Creek or Flashpoint. From her beginnings as the world music band Kaleefah’s lead singer, this versatile vocalist and consummate entertainer has blown audiences away with her scorching vocal style, uncanny ability to deliver powerful original songs and to get deep into the guts of the most venerable standard. Shakura’s long-simmering career initially moved into high gear in 2008 with a triumph at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, when she earned the runner-up position, competing against more than 100 bands from more than 20 different countries. Shakura S’Aida has consistently been thrilling audiences with her powerful pipes for years, most recently as a guest host on CBC Radio 2’s Weekend Morning. As a veteran of the international music scene, she’s performed both as a featured artist with musicians like Jimmy Smith, Lee Oskar (WAR), Bettye LaVette and Keb Mo’, as well as an award winning solo artist. 2017 Maple Blues Award Nominee: Female Vocalist 2016 Maple Blues Award Nominee: Female Vocalist 2015 Maple Blues Award Nominee: Female Vocalist 2014 Maple Blues Award Nominee: Entertainer, Female Vocalist 2013 Juno Award Nominee-Best Blues Album of the Year 2013 Blues Music Awards Nominee-Contemporary Female Artist 2013 Indie Music Awards Nominee-Blues Artist of the Year 2013 Maple Blues Award Nominee: Entertainer, Female Vocalist, Recording/Producer (w/Howard Ayee & Scott Cable) and Songwriter of the Year (w/Donna Grantis) 2011 Maple Blues Award Recipient: Female Vocalist of the Year 2011 Independent Music Award Recipient: Blues Artist of the Year 2008 International Blues Challenge 1st Runner Up 1992 Juno Award Nominee-Best World Music Artist/Band
