The audio-visual universe of contemporary Creole-Canadian music producer and creative director Sika Valmé, is an expertly crafted collection of timeless, relatable narratives.
Born and raised in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Sika moved to Québec in 2011. Based in Montreal, she now shares time between Vancouver, New York, and Mexico. Her creations, reflections of her many migrations, find inspiration in geometry, the natural world, and the human experience.
Sika’s work is an immersive encounter, one that synergizes opposing elements to create a distinct style with an unforgettable sound. Dubbed as “Creole-LoFi”, the rich and layered textures of her music offer an unconventional take on Caribbean rhythms. Her visual art compliments her music with bright, colourful imagery that plays with the same tensions between disparate geographies and cultures.
The result is a body of work that illuminates elements of Sika’s Diasporic journey, and offers a fresh and innovative cultural perspective. This unique approach, coupled with her distinct vocal styling, has positioned Sika as a remarkable artist, creative leader, and collaborator.
