Witch Prophet is a queer, Ethiopian/Eritrean, singer-songwriter, and co-CEO of Heart Lake Records. She provides her fans with a soundscape of vocal layers, loops, raps, and harmonies on a bed of hip-hop, jazz, and soul-inspired beats. This past March saw the release of her sophomore album, DNA Activation, now shortlisted for the 2020 Polaris Music Prize.
Witch Prophet has released the official visuals for “Tesfay,” taken from her latest record. Directed by Toronto-based filmmaker and photographer, Leah Vlemmiks, “Tesfay“ (translation: my hope) is inspired by the memory of Witch Prophet’s late grandfather who raised five daughters as a single father in Ethiopia after the passing of her grandmother.
