Born in Colombia, singer and composer Iaki Vallejo brings a message of unity and peace. Mixing Afro-Colombian traditions with jazz, soul, salsa, afro-beat, funk and reggae, her compositions and arrangements are a living example of differences coming together to create something beautiful. Her powerful, intense and warm voice earned her the "Best Voice of Melbourne" award in 2009 and her message of unity honoured her with the International Federation of Peace's 2016 "Peace Award".

Singing since the age of 12, she has travelled the world, composing, performing and studying with luminary figures such as Sharmi Russel, Michelle Nicolle and Italian pianist Arturo Valiante. She released her first self titled album in 2016 which includes two tracks produced by master drummer David Jones, who also laid down their drum tracks. Earlier this year, Iaki launched her EP " Yo Soy" (I am) at Bird's Basement and was nominated from Music Victoria Awards as best Intercultural Act 2019.
