Zaki Ibrahim is a globally distinguished singer/songwriter and producer who is known to make music and art ahead of its time. Born in Vancouver, British Columbia, she is the daughter of a South African father and a British-Scottish mother.

Zaki co-founded the label District Six Music and made her commercial recording debut with Shö: Iqra in Orange (2006), a ten-track EP. Two years later she returned with Eclectica (Episodes in Purple) (2008), an eight-track EP released in association with the Sony Music subsidiary Red Ink Music. Her song “Money” was nominated for R&B/Soul Recording of the Year at the JUNO Awards in 2009.

Since then her works have been featured in several feature films, penetrated the deep underground art world, broken through as anthems in South Africa’s house music scene and she is heralded as one of Canada’s Underground Hip Hop Soul icons.
