Twenty-something singer Zaki Ibrahim has a career that musicians twice her age would envy. Born in Vancouver, she has spent time shuttling between the West Coast and the South African homeland of her father. Those cultures, coupled with her mother’s Scottish/English heritage, informed her musical education at an early age.

It also prepared her for a life on the road, and she has since performed alongside acts like Tumi and the Volume, Jane Bunnett, Toots and the Maytals and Erykah Badu. Because of the range of influences Ibrahim grew up with, her music is a very natural and modern-sounding blend of hip hop, R&B, pop and electronics with a distinct South African flavour. Lauryn Hill grabbed attention for her ability to fuse hip hop with beautiful, melodic vocals, and tracks like “Grow Again” illustrate Ibrahim’s potential to take over that spotlight.

While many up-and-coming soul singers don’t offer much more than singing abilities, what sets Ibrahim apart is that you can hear the talent and originality oozing out of this recording. Over the course of the record’s eight tracks, she sings in both French and English, sometimes she raps, and occasionally she just uses vocal sounds.

One of the most refreshing things about Eclectica (episodes in purple)—aside from the blend of musical styles—is the varied lengths of tracks. At a time when the industry is focused on selling three-minute singles, it’s nice to see an artist unafraid to include a song less than two minutes or a remix that’s almost 18 minutes long.

Hopefully, as Ibrahim’s career continues to take off, she can stay on the road and out of the loop of what the music industry expects
