Elle Barbara’s Black Space

Montreal, QC

Elle Barbara’s music defies categorization. From off-kilter electro to powerful ballads, it all shimmers with a DIY disco aesthetic, sounding like if Wham! was more musically inclined and thoughtful. Elle performed in their old band, Jef Barbara, at Kazoo! Fest in 2015 and turned in a legendary performance. With their new “line-up made of musicians of Sub-Saharan descent, Elle Barbara aims to recenter contemporary blackness via the rejection of racialized tropes.”
