Contrasting alloy. Alias La Bronze, singer-songwriter Nadia Essadiqi’s magnetic charisma vibrates through her electro-pop accented with a hint of rock, evoking a hymn of love and freedom underlined with gentleness and ardour. Her enrapturing voice reveals a unique and heartfelt poetry.
The entire world discovered her in the fall of 2015 with her deeply moving and now famous cover of ‘Formidable’ by Stromae in Arabic, which amassed more than a million Internet views in just a few weeks. A recipient of numerous awards, La Bronze’s discography includes a self-titled album (2014) and a mini-album (Rois de Nous, 2016). She was nominated two years in a row at the Canadian Music Week Awards: in 2016 as “Best Francophone Artist of the Year” and in 2015 as “Emerging Francophone Artist of the Year”. She was also nominated at GAMIQ 2015 (“Alternative Gala of Independent Music From Quebec”) in the categories of “Emerging Artist of the Year” and “Indie Rock Album of the Year”.
