Alika has become one of the most important representatives of hip hop, reggae and dancehall music in the Spanish language. Notably influenced by urban culture, Alika’s music speaks to the injustices lived in barrios across the globe and has gained her recognition across multiple continents. Alika was one of the founding members of Actitud María Marta, one of the first female rap groups in Latin America, which helped pave the way for her successful career as a solo reggae, hip hop and cumbia artist.
Alika has 7 studio albums to date and is credited with creating some of Latin America’s greatest reggae anthems. Songs like Ejercito Despierta, No Te Pongas Triste, Galang, Rugido de Leon, and Oye Mi Amiga have helped to establish Alika as an international reggae star and have helped to put Latin Reggae on the world map. An example of this is Alika’s 5th studio album, recorded in collaboration with world renowned dub producer Mad Professor. This 2009 album, entitled “Mad Professor meets Alika”, was entirely produced by the dub genius and received accolades in the UK as well as throughout Latin America.
Alika’s charisma and stage presence have taken her around the globe, performing in many countries including the United States, Mexico, Colombia, France, Costa Rica, Venezuela, Colombia, Peru, Chile and Argentina. Don’t miss it as Alika makes her return to the Bay Area, with an exclusive performance at the Starline Social Club on August 11th.
