Denise Chaila

Denise Chaila is an Afro-Diasporan rapper, singer and poet. She hails from Chikankata, Zambia and is now based in Limerick, Ireland. Her music blends spoken word and rap to give voice to a transatlantic odyssey exploring identity, belonging, and home from the heart and mind of a diasporan dreamer. She uses her hyphenated identities to weave a narrative spanning continents, cultures and genres to “make space for what doesn’t yet ‘make sense’”. Her music marries art with a passion for justice and social change to build space for often forgotten stories and voices in dynamic and compelling ways.

Denise is an electric and charismatic performer who has captured audiences at live-shows, festivals and guest appearances around the country and abroad. Including; Electric Picnic (Other Voices, Little Big Tent), Body & Soul, Decolonising Sexuality Festival,Tiger Dublin Fringe Festival. Her unique take on rap and spoken word has firmly established her as one of the most important voices in Ireland.
