Back by very popular demand, we’re beyond pleased to welcome Alysha Brilla back to the Folly stage for 2019! Alysha first played Folly Fest in 2017, and completely blew our minds with her soulful melodies, entrancing live presence, and blending of unique cultural influences to make something brand new!
Alysha Brilla is a Juno Award nominated artist, music producer and songwriter. Her music, blogs and spirituality are inspired by growing up with parents from two different cultural and religious backgrounds; an Indo-Tanzanian father and Euro-Canadian mother. Her fourth, self-produced album “Rooted” culminates the spiritual & philosophical musings with upbeat folk/jazz/world sounds.
Brilla has performed internationally including across Canada, Australia, Singapore, Tanzania, Chile and more. In addition to live performances of music, Brilla conducts arts education workshops in schools; promoting diversity in music and mentoring in self-expression through the arts.
