SIX SHOOTER MANAGEMENT WELCOMES ZAKI IBRAHIM. “RETRO-AFROFUTURIST” HEADLINES TORONTO’S GREAT HALL ON FEB 21, 2019. IBRAHIM CONFIRMED TO SHOWCASE AT LE PRINTEMPS DE BOURGES IN APRIL.

 

Six Shooter is thrilled to welcome Zaki Ibrahim to the artist management roster. The enigmatic, highly acclaimed songwriter, now back in Toronto following the 2018 release of The Secret Life of Planets, defies simplifications of identity and genre along with other industry paradigms, which is to say she fits the Six Shooter artist profile perfectly. “The first time I saw Zaki perform at Polaris several years ago blew me away. It was a performance I will never forget.,” says Six Shooter Management President Helen Britton. “To have since met Zaki, connected with her and now to have ultimately signed such a rare talent is thrilling. She is a fantastic addition to our management roster, and I look forward to sharing all her upcoming plans with the world in the coming months.”

Ibrahim has upcoming headline shows and festival appearances in Canada, including at Toronto’s Great Hall this week. Overseas showcases, including at prestigious Le Printemps de Bourges festival in France, are planned for spring, where Ibrahim will be accompanied by Six Shooter Records’ new VP International Business Development, Allison Outhit.

Now booked by barrier-crushing trailblazer Tao-Ming Lau of Blue Crane, an agency that prioritizes underrepresented artists including women, LGBT and artists of colour, Ibrahim’s global tour history includes much of Europe, South Africa and North America, from Red Bull Studio Cape Town to Mongrel Media’s TIFF parties.

A nomad in both philosophical and logistical senses, Ibrahim’s extensive and varied network of collaborators, creatives and contributors has established a global presence primed to rise.
