Event Description

Wavelength Music’s monthly music series brings internationally renowned artist Munya to Toronto for her only Canadian stop on her international tour, along with acclaimed MC Dijah SB.

Josianne Boivin, AKA MUNYA, will make the only Canadian stop during her international tour in support of a new EP trilogy series;  - each named for a significant place in her life. Trained as an opera singer, the Montreal-based singer/producer now experiments with analog and digital instrumentation, to create what she calls “New Synth Folk.”

Also slated to perform on November 9th is sneaker-head, and mental health advocate Dijah SB. Hailing from Toronto’s Eglinton West neighbourhood, DijahSB has been perfecting her rhymes since 2011, when, under the name Kzaraw, she joined forces with Toronto producer Astro Mega to form a boom bap duo called Class of ’93.  Since then, the 25-year-old has forged her own path, revamped her sound and recorded five solo albums to date including her latest released  in 2018, Looking at Space From a Submarine.

A third, opening act will also be added to the bill.

About Munya

MUNYA began playing classical piano at the age of 4 until her teenage years where she began performing and studying opera and classical vocal techniques. She slowly honed her voice and learned to become a “Coloratura” and qualified for several competitions, including “Canimex Canadian music competition” at the age of 16. She then paused her study of classical music and took a deep interest in Jazz. She began a program at the University of Montreal where she studied Jazz and fell in love with the works of Bill Evans, John Coltrane and Nina Simone. After her University time she began collaborating and touring as a keyboardist and back up singer with other Montreal artists including Alex Nevsky, Philemon Cimon, Ouri, and Sterling Grove.

About Dijah SB

Dijah, born Kahdijah Payne, is a clever and agile emcee whose rhymes are as witty as they are honest. She takes a balanced approach to her music, fusing candid, personal lyrics with modern beats and infectious hooks. A true artist, Dijah is adaptable and innovative, always finding ways to put her own stamp on emerging music trends. She navigates different sounds with ease from drum-heavy boom bap to dark, grungy rock, to trap’s booming bass. Her talents have led her to appear on Sway in the Morning, BET’s Freestyle Friday reboot and, in 2018, on stage with her idol Jay Electronica.

Dijah cites influences like Kid Cudi, Pusha T, and Lupe Fiasco and her music encapsulates a bit of each of them: like Cudi, she’s open about her experiences with depression and injects her rhymes with vulnerability. She has the same cocksure confidence as Push and, like early Fiasco, an endearing relatability. Tying everything together is a unique perspective that’s all her own: stories of a young, Black queer woman who loves Toronto as much as she loves her Nike SBs.
