Wafia presents 'I'm Good' 



Wafia has just released her new single 'I'm Good', and announced her upcoming tour.  This is a big one, taking her from Australia, the UK, Europe, and North America.  We're looking forward to her show in Toronto at the Garrison.  The last time we saw her perform was at the Opera House with Ta-Ku, and that was an unforgettable night.  The prospect of another live show, with her new music like 'I'm Good' is a really exciting one.  Wafia has an incredible voice, and she's a brilliant songwriter.  Take a listen to 'I'm Good' below, and get tickets to see her live here.  


VIDEO: Wafia 'Bodies'

Wafia's new song 'Bodies' is more than just another beautiful track.  She's created a protest song for her family, written after American President Donald Trump announced his Muslim travel ban.  The very same day Wafia's mother was denied entry to Australia while fleeing Syria.  With the song she counters the specific, derisive language used in the media to describe immigrants and refugees by humanizing their experiences.  Wafia makes their struggles relatable to those whose lives are far removed from that reality, by using the video to celebrate differences.  'Bodies' (directed by Alli Coates) is a work of art, and it's exactly what our world needs.

Wafia's new single "83 Days"

Wafia's latest is "83 Days", from her upcoming sophomore EP on Future Classic.  We've fallen in love with her voice thanks to her work with Ta-Ku, especially the (m)edian EP and the unforgettable live show the duo brought to the Opera House in Toronto.  "83 Days" is a story of heartbreak, and promises unfulfilled.  Once you've heard "83 Days" it will stick with you, calling you back time and again...



Ta-Ku & Wafia: NPR Tiny Desk Concert

Ta-Ku and Wafia have undeniable chemistry.  We've heard it on their incredible EP '(m)edian' and in the unbelievable live shows.  It's never more apparent than in the intimate setting of the Tiny Desk Concert.  Last month this photo surfaced, showing that the session had taken place.  From there it was just a matter of time until NPR released the performance.
