Safia Nolin


Safia Nolin is one of the most intriguing and powerful voices of the Canadian and Quebecois music scenes. Discovered for her sombre folk, she now pushes the boundaries of the genre by incorporating grunge and emo elements into her music. Since her first album in 2015, Limoilou, she won the prize for ADISQ Best New Artist in Quebec and has been at the forefront of the province's new cultural landscape. She released her sophomore album, Dans Le Noir, two years later and toured extensively. She produced two other albums of cover songs and a whole new EP, SEUM. She was also nominated for a Polaris prize and received the prestigious Felix-Leclerc award. Very socially engaged, Safia has been involved in the battle for LBGTQ2S+ rights, anti-bullying movements and for better representation for artists from racialized and/or minority backgrounds. In 2021, she received the medal of the National Assembly of Quebec for her longstanding involvement in these causes.
