Kalila Badali


Kalila Badali is an alternative folk/pop artist and registered psychotherapist based in Toronto, Canada. Kalila’s music invites her audience into an ethereal, yet groovy space with an intricate guitar picking style and vocal loops to explore the intersecting themes of mental illness, ecology, and feminism.

She officially launched her music career in 2019 with the release of the EP “Perfectly Collapsing” (shared on plantable paper to reduce waste).

Her current EP, “Panacea” has received funding support from the Ontario Arts Council and FACTOR Canada and will be released in July 20th 2023. She has been described as “bewitching” and “ethereal” prompting comparisons to Florence + The Machine and Kate Bush.

Kalila also has a unique and vibrant psychotherapy practice working with neurodivergent, LGBTQ2SIA+, and arts workers and providing Music-Integrated Psychotherapy. This has led to offering workshops to emerging artists on musician’s mental health.
