If you thought AtlanticRock refered only to those people like myself who were born in a country in Africa and now live in the US, then you might scrach your head about Zaki as an AtlanticRocker. But this has never been my intention. To me AfricanINAmerica has always included children of African immigrants. And the America part has never been United States only.
With that said, allow me to introduce to you Zaki Ibrahim, daughter of a South African father and a Swedish mother, and an all around soulful impress. Born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Zaki now calls Toronto home. And from that basecamp (with outposts all over the world), she blends some of the most popular sounds of recent years into an eclectic sounds that is just too cool to describe, let alone label. It’s Neo-Soul, it’s Hip Hop, it’s House, it everything that grips the ears and moves the spirit…to dance! Definitely one to look out for.
