Location The Arden Theatre, St. Albert, AB
From her beginnings as lead singer for the award-winning world music band Kaleefah, Brooklyn-born, Swiss-raised and Canadian-based Shakura S’Aida (pronounced Shack-oo-ra Sigh-ee-da) continues to blow audiences away with her scorching Blues vocal style, as well as an uncanny ability to deliver powerful original songs and “get deep into the guts” of the most venerable standard.

A versatile vocalist and consummate entertainer, her long-simmering career initially moved into high gear in 2008 with a runner-up triumph at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, where she competed against more than 100 other artists from 20 different countries. The accolades have continued to grow with a Juno Award nomination, a Maple Blues Award win, as well as countless other nominations. Whether performing at festivals in Dubai, Europe, Australia, Rwanda or Russia, S’Aida continues to thrill audiences with her powerful pipes. A veteran of the international music scene, this multilingual artist richly demonstrates the multiculturalism Canada prides itself on.
