Joyce N'Sana

Biography :


Joyce N’sana, a rising female voice of reggae and Afro-blue-hop, is a singer-songwriter who grew up in the context of the Congolese wars. She delivers a clear and determined message: she disseminates an art of peace. Marked by the image of her family fleeing from home and her father taking only his guitar and his Bible, this background set the foundations of her artistic life.

A small woman with a big voice, she anchors her reggae on a gospel track while adding her savoury blend of Afro, blues and hip-hop. ‘’Nobody remains indifference to her amazing stage presence,” says Camuz. She engages her audience on a roller coaster of emotion, both through her music, with its catchy rhythms and touching melodies, and through her voice, with its gentleness overlapping with powerful husky ascents, accompanied by deep, committed lyrics.

It is not by chance that Joyce N’sana has won various awards in the last few years. This Congolese-Quebecer brought out her first EP in March 2016, which remained No. 1 in Canada throughout the summer in the World category in the Earshot rankings and was named “World Music Album of the Year” by CJLO radio. In 2017, she appeared on the program “La Voix” and won the Montréal final in the Landmark Events Showcase.
