Laydy Jams is a duo of 2 women of colour, based in Vancouver, unceded Coast Salish territories. Featuring Missy D as femcee and Sejal on violin and vocals, our music is a mix of hip-hop, vocal harmonies, violin, and a lil 90’s throwback to bring you home, hope, and love for the revolution. We use our music to empower youth and challenge the themes often seen in popular music and society.
Laydy Jams’ music and message is impacted by our diverse cultural backgrounds, with influences hailing from around the world. We write our life experiences into music, knowing that we provide a kind of comfort, familiarity, and radical joy for other people of colour and marginalized communities. We bring the sound of our lives to audiences through roots of R&B, hip-hop, soul, classical, jazz, and funk. Take a listen. Welcome to the family.
