Soul singer, Salakida
Her motto is "Magic Happens", her voice is a natural, poignant soothing instrument that immediately and completely captivates you, mind, body and spirit. These are a few of the qualities that comprise Salakida (Sa-luh-Key-Duh), the multi-talented singer/songwriter/entertainer. When in Salakida's presence, her poise, assurance, and warmth of spirit instantly tells that there is more to the artist than what meets the eye. Born and raised in Oakland, CA, she recently relocated to Atlanta and has quickly built buzz around her forthcoming debut project, "Salakida".
"Salakida" is a glimpse into the future with a nod to the past, and a refreshing change for the present while offering a soulful hybrid of R&B, hip hop, alternative and pop that she calls "Blippie Funk" or Black Hippie Funk. This distinctive sound has awarded singer/somgwriter Salakida the tremendous opportunity to share the stage with talents like D'wayne Wiggins (Tony, Toni, Tone, Destiny's Child), Kenny Lattimore, Allen Anthony, (Roc-a-fella Records), Blackalicious, Tre Hardsen of the Pharcyde and Jaguar Wright, to name just a few. In a market saturated with girl singers, Salakida truly stands out as an artist that equal parts talent, sensuality and uncompromising creativity.
