Laydy Jams is a collective of women of colour, based in Vancouver, unceded Coast Salish territories, featuring Missy D as femcee and Sejal on violin and vocals. We bring the sound of our lives to audiences through roots of R&B, hip-hop, soul, classical, jazz, and funk.
Laydy Jams' music and message is impacted by our diverse cultural backgrounds, with influences hailing from the West Indies, Middle East, South Asia, Europe, North and South America, and Africa. We use our music to empower youth, and challenges the themes often seen in popular music and society. 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; providing hope, home, and love.
