Biography

Bijuriya

Strongly inspired by her South Asian culture, drag artist and musician Bijuriya is appreciated for her proud, festive, twisted and critical take on Bollywood and other aspects of Desi culture. On stage, Bijuriya is a dazzling thunderbolt of energy and quirkiness. Half-Indian and half-Québécoise, Bijuriya explores her cultural roots by oscillating between homage, parody and critical thinking. In 2022, she presented Bijuriya, an 80-minute solo drag/theatre/music show at Montréal, arts interculturels (MAI)this show was reprised at the Queer Arts Festival in Vancouver, the Music Gallery in Toronto and FluidFest in Calgary. Further performances are planned with the CAM en tournée program in Montreal in the 2023-2024 season (October, January, and February). Her EPBijuriya Chamke is available on all streaming platforms. Excerpts from reviews: “this experimental, drag influenced queer pop shimmers and gleams, and is unlike anything you have ever heard before. Utterly wonderful” (Musicngear) “smart Dance-Pop, with interesting production choices, and a star singer” (New Music Jason).
