Born of a Polish father, and a Québecois mother, Briga’s music is a reflection of her fragmented identity.

Recipient of the Stingray Rising Star Award, and nominee at the Canadian Folk Music Awards along with Québec’s ADISQ awards, Her songs are half instrumental, half written in French and English, of which all are accompanied by her fervent violin firmly rooted in eastern European and Romani folk sounds learned from the days her father played the piano to put the children to sleep.

Briga Métropolis.

Her body of work includes four albums: Diaspora (2009), Turbo Folk Stories (2012), Wake (2014), and Femme (2017), and numerous performances across Canada, the United-States, and Europe. Her unique sound is described as bring a Balkan/Quebecois mash-up of music, delivered with a Turbo Folk edge, wrapped up in heavy grooves that drive her wailing violin and sweet voice.
