Joyce N’sana, one of the new female voice of Reggae and Afrobluhop, is a songwriter/performer who grew in the Congolese civil war context. She's marked by that image of her family fleeing the house one night, and her dad grabbing nothing but his guitar and his Bible. That was the foundations of her artistic life. 

She's delivering a clear and determined message, she spreads an art of peace. Little woman with a huge voice, she settle her Reggae into a Gospel background, adding to it her own mix of Afro, Blues and Hip-hop. “Her stage presence is jaw-dropping’’ is saying Camuz, Montreal’s music calendar. 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.

If Joyce N’sana won many awards those past years, this is no coincidence (Mondomix’s choice and Honorable Mention at the Syli d’Or des Nuits d’Afrique 2013, Quartier des Spectacles and DAM’s choice at Vitrines locales métissées Vision Diversité 2014, DAM’s Professional Artistic Mentorat with the artist Webster in 2015, On Rotation Artistic Residency Program with CJLO radio in 2016). The Congolo-Canadian released her first EP in mars 2016. She stays #1 in Canada all summer in the World Music categorie on Earshot, wich regroup most community and campus radio across the country. CJLO radio calls it World album of the year.
