Amaal's story is unique. Born between 1989 and 1991 in Mogadishu, she was raised in a traditional Muslim household, the middle child of seven sisters and two brothers. When the civil war broke out in Somalia in the early 90s, Amaal and her family emigrated to Toronto, Canada in hopes of a better life. Amaal quickly immersed herself to art having been exposed to music at school as well as drama classes. She did not begin until singing the age of 16, and only released her first singles 4 years later. Amaal’s lyrics have always been socially conscious, focusing on topics of growth, love/heartbreak as well as global causes. She draws influences from both her personal life experiences and her travels, including a six month trip to Uganda where she worked closely with women's groups across local communities.
