Ellise Barbara

From Montreal, Canada

Ellise Barbara is a Montreal-based avant-garde singer-songwriter, artist and thinker whose musical output combines elements of brazen 80s funk, late 70s underground, and downtown no wave. Rising from artist-run spaces such as La Brique and Drones Club at the turn of the current decade, Barbara's recent efforts have been partly centered around LGBTQ community organizing (Taking What We Need, ASTTeQ, African Rainbow).
