Tzadeka and the Murder Hornettes

Tzadeka makes music that is unpredictable, clever and magnetic.

  • March 3, 2023
    8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Female-fronted, Experimental Prairie soul that’s fresh-as-hell! An Alberta-based hip hop pioneer, Tzadeka creates boundary-pushing art and music that embodies her ethics, intuition, creativity and style. Recently joining forces with instrumentalists Allison Ochoa (baritone sax), and Kirsten Elliot (flute)- the Murder Hornettes; this trio is heating up stages with that Tzadeka sound.

Tzadeka is a recipient of the Edmonton Artist Trust Fund (2021); as an established performer, promoter, community-builder and all around rabble rouser, she has been pushing the boundaries of prairie hip hop/soul since putting out her first album with music collective Eshod ibn Wyza, back in 2003. Tzadeka has released five albums to date and taken part in numerous side projects that highlight her talent, authenticity, and willingness to take creative risks. Tzadeka’s recent album Cities on Fire, was nominated for Edmonton Music Prize, Album of the Year (2021).
