Nora Toutain Vol.I launch
Casa del Popolo
Nora proudly presents her first music video for her first single "Bad at Love"!
The dance soul/pop track was produced by Chris Vincent of notable electro-soul band
Busty and the Bass.
“Bad at Love” isn’t an anti-love song so much as it’s Nora Toutain’s call for authenticity and honesty in love -- asking us to drop the perfectionism in relationships and to embrace the nature of human error.
Paired with a video that depicts a series of thoughtfully curated dance scenes that move from sunrise to dark, this double-release is an exciting introduction to what is to come from the singer-songwriter!
Not an Interlude
“Not an Interlude” moves in a direction to speak out against injustices, particularly, the adverse power dynamics created by toxic masculinity.
Women (latest single)
My third single "Women" is coming on July 24th!
I wanted to honour the Queens of my world in a DIY music video. The video paints a powerful and moving portrait of women of different generations, different social background and different cultural background.... women from all different walks of life, united in this authentic and intimate family party.
I wanted to share an intimate part of my identity to invite everyone to reconnect with their heritage, and to celebrate and honour the everyday women in their lives
Nora performing one of her original song "Women" with her band @MIDI INDIE festival, Montreal.
NORA is a singer-songwriter from Morocco, based in Montreal.
Her brand of synth-driven alternative rnb music seamlessly moves across genres like neo-soul, funk and jazz with hints of afro rhythms -- a direct reference to her diverse cultural background and musical upbringing. Her love for these traditional genres and contemporary sounds elevates her music offering a fresh and unique experience on stage. Wherever she performs, her ease and energy on stage charms crowds.
NORA got her start performing with Kalmunity, Canada’s largest music improv collective, with whom she was able to perform at the Montreal International Jazz Festival.
Kalmunity also introduced NORA to her current band members and her producer Chris Vincent (Busty and the Bass).
NORA has a double-album set for release in 2020.
Her first album Grounding Place Vol. I, will be out in spring of 2020.
