Safiya Leslie is a vocalist and New York City native who is pursuing a dual degree in music production and engineering and music business/management at Berklee College of Music.

Trained with the National Chorale under the direction of Vagarshak Ohanyan from 2011–2015, she developed a passion for jazz. Later, at the New York Jazz Workshop, she studied under Olivia Foschi, Fay Victor, and Jocelyn Medina.

During her time at Berklee, Leslie has become a prominent and founding member of Riddim Symphony, a soca band which has opened for dancehall artist Konshens and reggae artist Keznamdi.

This summer, Leslie plans to release her first album, which will explore the infusion between jazz and the Caribbean while telling the story of the world and life, one song at a time.
