Wyclef Jean picks Surya for his top 20.
Yes, you read the heading correctly. Wyclef is holding a contest called 'Twitter “More Bottles” Remix Contest.' He selected 20 artist including SURYA.
Born and raised in Vancouver, B.C, Surya is the meeting of two musical worlds, urban and spiritual. Surya means, “sun” in Sanskrit and she indeed brings a refreshing sound to both musical worlds. Surya’s alter ego ‘Empress Elf’ caters to her urban sound, where she is both a vocalist and producer. Her collaborations have proved to be fruitful, working with acclaimed DJ/Producer Kemo, hAZEL and Vago from Vanguards.
Whether singing in Hindi to an Indian classical music crowd, collaborating with hip hop artist or leading kirtan at yoga studios, her genuinely sunny disposition and boundless energy shines through to create an experience that is healing and uplifting. Her gift truly brings joy to all who have experienced, “The Surya Sound.”
