PA SALIEU

(United Kingdom)


With only a handful of releases to his name, Gambian-by-way-of-Coventry’s Pa Salieu has consistently released some of this year’s most exciting and talked about singles. His dynamic and genreless approach has led Pa to win widespread support from a diverse range of cultural tastemakers such as Dazed, i-D, GRM, Link Up, Mixtape Madness, The Fader, Complex, Clash, The Face as well as being playlisted across BBC Radio1, 1Xtra and 6Music (including receiving a whopping four TOTW’s at Radio 1, counting his third from Nick Grimshaw on My Family).

At only 23-years-old, Coventry’s Pa Salieu is blending his West Midlands upbringing and Gambian heritage into a unique brand of rap that has seen him carve out space as an exciting new voice in British music. Breakout song ‘Frontline’ became an early anthem of 2020 and was heavily played on BBC 1Xtra, Reprezent Radio and Rinse FM.
