ABOUT JOYCE N'SANA
Joyce N’sana, a rising female voice of Reggae and Afrobluehop, is a songwriter-performer who grew in the Congolese civil war context. She delivers a clear and determined message; she spreads an art of peace. She's marked by that image of her family fleeing the house, and her dad grabbing nothing but his guitar and his Bible. It’s on that past that lays the foundations of her artistic life.
Little woman with a huge voice, she settles her Reggae into a Gospel background, adding to it her own mix of Afro, Blues and Hip-hop. “Her stage presence is jaw-dropping’’ says Camuz. She brings her audience through a roller coaster of emotions with her lively music filled with touching melodies, as much as with her voice that’s surfing between smooth singing and powerful raspy blows. The whole surrounded by deep conscious lyrics.
It's no coincidence that Joyce N’sana has won many awards in recent years. The Congolo-Canadian released her first EP in mars 2016 and it stayed #1 in Canada all summer in the World Music category on Earshot, as well as being called "World album of the year" by CJLO radio. In 2017 she appeared on the French version of "The Voice"; and she won the Montreal regional finals of Landmark Events showcase.
