2013 has seen R&B turned on its head with artist returning to the genres roots, as well as pushing the boundaries even further than before, and Zaki Ibrahim is Canadas answer to it. Drawing from Sade, Radiohead, Stevie Wonder, and J. Dilla as inspiration, her debut full-length album, Every Opposite, has an apocalyptic allure that makes it impossible to forget. The album was nominated for and part of the shortlist for the 2013 Polaris Music Prize. She is no stranger to awards, having been nominated for a Juno for her 2009 EP Eclectica: Episodes in Purple. Her live performance is highly energetic and captivating, with a mix of sonics and visuals that transports the listener to the center of Zakis universe.
