2014 Juno nominee and Oktoberfest Woman Of The Year Award recipient Alysha Brilla is a critically acclaimed Tanzanian-Canadian singer, songwriter and producer. Brilla’s music has been featured on major network television shows such as “King” and “Degrassi; the Next Generation”.
“My name is Alysha Brilla; I was born Alysha Mohamed. I am an Indo-Tanzanian-Canadian Juno-Nominated singer, songwriter, producer, yoga instructor, part-time clothing designer and social justice advocate. I identify as mixed-race and queer.
“I have been making music since I was a little one. People often ask me what I play. I sing and play guitar, piano, drums, I dabble in trumpet and I produce music. I’ve also been teaching yoga for several years. I travelled to Rishikesh, India, to study its ancient art and I left a little piece of my heart there. I would consider myself invested in the politics of people; namely equality amongst humans with a special interest in sexual equality, indigenous rights and decolonizing our societies through awareness and education.
“I am so grateful to be alive, to be able to make music, teach yoga and spread my belief that our world can be an amazing, harmonious place. It is my dream that humans continue to evolve for the better and our world is someday a peaceful place where education and open-mindedness are seen as more precious than gold.”
