Saidah Baba Talibah


Saidah Baba Talibah is a raunchy, raw, and in your face performer, taking the best of what she learned from her Tony and Grammy Award-nominated iconic mother, Salome Bey, “Canada’s First Lady of Blues.” Strong bloodline notwithstanding, Saidah has travelled the world, won awards (including Ottawa BluesFest’s "She’s The One") and shared the stage with musical talents like Bootsy Collins (Parliament-Funkadelic), Little Dragon, and Trombone Shorty. She was also featured, alongside pioneering black female rockers Skin (Skunk Anansie), Alexis Brown (Straight Line Stitch), Militia Vox, in Laina Dawes's “What Are You Doing Here?” Saidah is currently working on the follow-up to her debut album ((S)CREAM, a seamless blend of rock, blues, and raunchy soul.
