Bio

“Electromagnetic fields of joy

Dividing and converging all

Utopian visions taking us far, far, far”

~ AMALIA, All The Funk I Need

Where tropical monsoons meet the cobbled streets of the Northern hemisphere… from Manila to Londontown… Canadian-based artist/activist AMALIA was conjured where opposites collide… First introduced to the funk world by Dam-Funk in 2011. ‘The First Lady of Modern Funk” (KPFK Radio Los Angeles)… AMALIA’s debut full-length “Art Slave” and involvement with Swedish producer Opolopo on “Voltage Controlled Feelings” had her circulating the globe from LA’s Funkmosphere to Kyoto Jazz Massive’s The Room. Writing about everything from love to diasporic dreamworlds, prior to her underground funk success AMALIA had been nominated for Best Contemporary Jazz Artist at the Juno’s for her electronic jazz outfit, Sekoya. Garnering fans such as Rock Legend Randy Bachman to Hip Hop Giant Rahzel, the band dismantled after their second record which redirected AMALIA’s efforts towards her own solo projects. Fast forward 2021, reflecting on 2 polar opposite experiences during a global pandemic, she delivers another underground punch on “Don’t Be Ashamed Of Love” with funk producer, label curator Gil Masuda of Toronto-based Love Touch Records.

AMALIA is also best known for her collaborations with UK’s Atjazz, Central Congo’s Boddhi Satva, Paris’ Onra, Kansas CIty’s Reggie B, Rome’s AD Bourke, Pittsburgh’s Buscrates, & Bay Area’s B.Bravo & Teeko.

« Electromagnetic fields of joy

Dividing and converging all

~ AMALIA, All The Funk I Need

Là où les moussons tropicales et les rues pavées de l’hémisphère nord se rencontrent… Depuis Manila jusqu’à Londres… L’artiste et activiste basée au Canada, AMALIA, se retrouve là où les contraires s’entrechoquent. D’abord introduite au monde du funk par Dam-Funk en 2011, The First Lady of Modern Funk (KPFK Radio Los Angeles), AMALIA est amené à parcourir le globe – passant par Funkmosphere (LA) jusqu’à The Room (Kyoto Jazz Massive) – grâce à la sortie de son premier album Art Slave et l’implication du réalisateur suédois Opolopo sur « Voltage Controlled Feelings ». Elle écrit sur divers sujets comme l’amour et les mondes diasporiques rêvés. Avant de connaître un succès sur la scène funk underground, AMALIA a eu une nomination aux prix Juno dans la catégorie meilleure artiste jazz contemporaine, pour son projet jazz électronique Sekoya. Elle compte parmi ses fans le légendaire Randy Bachman, ainsi que le géant du hip hop Rahzel. Son groupe se défait après un deuxième album, voyant AMALIA se concentrer sur ses projets solo. 2021 : réfléchissant à des expériences diamétralement opposées durant la pandémie, elle sort le titre underground percutant « Don’t Be Ashamed Of Love » avec le réalisateur funk et curateur de l’étiquette torontoise Love Touch Records, Gil Masuda.

AMALIA est aussi connue pour ses collaborations avec Atjazz (UK), Boddhi Satva (Kongo central), Onra (Paris), Reggie B (Kansas City), AD Bourke (Rome), Buscrates (Pittsburgh) et B.Bravo & Teeko (San Francisco).

Organizer Les Sympathiques

Organizer of AMALIA

Les Sympathiques is a nonprofit (RLRQ, C. C-38) collective of Montréal musicians, other artists, and supporters who believe that the best way to develop our practice is through performance and sharing with the wider community. Central to this goal is presenting music that we deem rich in artistic quality (i.e. music with depth in its technical, semiotic, and innovative aspects). Our members and participating artists hail primarily from the jazz, classical, and experimental scenes. Our goal is to be a catalyst and binding agent for our musical community; one which stimulates creativity through providing:

-a space and framework for quotidian performance,
-a forum for discussing topical philosophical, theoretical, and practical issues,
-and a conduit for sharing the fruits of this process with each other, and also with the public at large.

We believe that challenging and sophisticated artwork need not remain only in the realm of the concert hall, nor should valued public exhibition be conserved for the occasion of grand festivals. It is our position that a creative state of mind is often easier to attain in a casual and comfortable atmosphere, just as excellence is only achieved through process and continuous effort. Moreover, the quest for creative excellence gains a greater dimensionality and significance when it is undertaken collectively.
