“Music is not about being perfect, its about being real.” In this episode of Instrumental, we talk with 25 year old, Filipino born-Scarborough raised artist, Balisi. The genre-bending singer talks about producing her own music, having her mother see her perform for the first time, writing a toxic relationship, growing up Muslim and being honest behind the mic. She opens up about a time in her life where she experienced depression, how she “snapped” out of it, & the importance of sharing her story in its truest form. Her parameters on releasing art into the world tell us she is passionate about the quality of her work and is ready for the world to witness it. Watch and listen as Balisi performs “Changes”, “Get Loose”, “Mona Lisa” and “Wonder”. Hosted by musician and broadcaster, Talia Schlanger.
