About Sista Mika
“Sophia Michalakoudis aka Sista MIKA was born in Brussels, Belgium. Her father was a Greek musician who played Rebetiko, which is traditional Greek music. Rebetiko means “rebel” and, like Reggae music, talks about social issues, the struggle for equality but is the music of the soul, like blues. This was the music that surrounded Sista MIKA as she was growing up.
In 1986 Sista MIKA attended a Black Uhuru concert in Brussels and was mesmerized by Mykal Rose’ incredible voice and onstage charisma. This was the inspiration for her reggae music career. She formed her first reggae band at the age of 23 called MIKA and The Human Race with her two sisters, Ann aka Factor-X, and Elizabeth, and they released a vinyl 45 called “MLK” (a tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King) which received acclaim from the media.
Over the years Sista MIKA has recorded 8 albums with collaborations from artistes like Steel Pulse, Freddy Loco, Omar Perry, Dubcreator, Gussie P., and Henry P. which have had limited distribution.”
“Freedom” ft Mykal Rose and Sizzla Kalonji will pique your curiosity and have you anticipating the release of the album later this year.
