IJALE

Melbourne Producer, Vocalist and Performer IJALE is a self-contained master of his sound. A keen music fan and avid creator, he blends a myriad of afrocentric sounds and western influences that reflect his Nigerian heritage, his Australian upbringing, and the multifaceted taste of an open-minded listener living in the internet age. These concoctions vary in style from piece to piece, but are usually punctuated by hints of African percussion, infectious bass lines and layered electronic textures, all of which pay direct homage to the hallmark genres of black creativity, including Jazz, Soul, RnB, and Hip Hop.

The main unifying connection throughout IJALE’s music is his unique voice and cuttingly honest lyrics that display both intellect, observation and personality.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
