Biography


Since its arrival in Montreal, Quebec, ILAM has discovered a new musical universe where diverse sounds intermingle in a cultural basin that is unique and open to the world.

 ILAM offers a distinctive style that is both spicy and full of sensitivity, combining a mixture of reggae rhythm with blues tilts, afro-folk, while mixing accents of pop and rock. His voice evokes the depth and power of the nomadic peoples in a captivating and urban atmosphere.

 He has recently arrived in Canada and already has several recognitions to his credit. He was warmly applauded at the Showcase of Local Mixed Music, receiving the Coup de Coeur of the Public. He also won the Spectra Team's “Coup de Coeur” Award for the 2015 edition of the “Francofolies de Montréal”, one of the most popular festivals in Québec's metropolis.

 

In January 2015, the “Conseil des arts de Montréa”l selected it for the recording of its first demo on Canadian lands. He was also a finalist for the “Prix de la Diversité” 2015. Recently, in addition to support from the Quebec Arts and Letters Council, he was awarded a "support for the emergence" award of Musicaction for the production of his EP, which was launched during his stay at Mundial Montréal in November. In May, Radio-Canada chose it as the World Music Revelation 2016-2017.
