Born in Mauritius, raised in Canada, Mohammad Ali is one man who’s been forced to walk two directions. An artist, an activist. Whether in the studio or in the picket lines, Mohammad has blended the raw energy that made hip-hop the global cultural force that it is, with a rock solid commitment to grassroots social justice activism for over ten years.

With his second album, Labour of Love, Mohammad ups the bar on protest music with a hard-hitting selection of workers’ anthems, spoken word poems and gritty frontline labour narratives designed to instil new energy in the movement for workers’ rights. Moving labour struggles beyond the ‘acoustic guitar’ and onto something original for a new generation, the Socialist Vocalist is redefining how his generation views political music.

Over the past decade, he has shared the stage with artists such Talib Kweli, Wu-Tang Clan's Ghostface, and hip-hop royalty KRS-ONE. He has performed at rallies from Parliament Hill (Stop SPP) to Queen's Park (Stop C-51) to Toronto City Hall (May Day; Stop Rob Ford) and headlined the 2007-08 nation-wide “Not in Our Names” tour, which combined with his “Such a Long Journey” album. These efforts helped to raise funds and awareness for US soldiers fighting for refuge from militarism.

Mohammad’s unique voice and perspective as a bridge between the worlds of hip-hop music and social activism have afforded him the opportunity to speak and facilitate workshops at various colleges/universities in Canada, all atop his concurrent tour schedule. To his own right, Mohammad created and curated the Hip-Hop & Empowerment Conference from 2011-14. Mohammad Ali has been covered/ interviewed by such programs/outlets as: “The National with Peter Mansbridge” (broadcast across Canada), The CBC Nightly News in Toronto, “CBC Metro Morning” (Radio broadcasted nationally) and “This Magazine” (national syndication).

“I love Mohammad Ali – a powerful voice for justice and great music.”
Charlie Angus (NDP Member of Parliament since 2004)
