Malika Tirolien calls on all of us to Rise in her inspiring new single and video — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

“This song is the celebration of change through unity and revolution,” the Grammy-nominated vocalist, songwriter and producer says. “It is the realization that we are living a historical moment: The rise of humanity’s consciousness and power.”

Tirolien’s soaring voice and conscious lyrics immediately set the stage for the Montreal-based artist’s forthcoming andn fittingly titled sophomore release Higher — the second in her tetralogy marking the elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water.

Born in Guadeloupe and now based in Montreal, Tirolien has garnered International attention throughout the last decade, including for her electrifying performance on I’m Not the One, a standout track from Snarky Puppy’s album Family Dinner. She’s also the lead singer and co-leader of Grammy Award-nominated nine-piece supergroup Bokanté alongside Snarky Puppy bandleader Michael League — who is also co-producing Higher with her.
