Who is rapper Tokischa?
Tokischa Altagracia Peralta, born March 17, 1996, is a rap musician from the Dominican Republic.
In 2020, she gained a following due to the popularity of her singles Perras Como Tú, Varón, Empatillada and Twerk.
The recording artist has also collaborated with Marshmello, Rosalía, Madonna and J Balvin.
Referring to her growing fan base, Tokischa told Shangay Magazine: “It’s very exciting to think that I’m being heard in countries like Spain.
“I want to travel the world with my music. In it I express what I have really lived, what I like and my fantasies. I give something real and people identify.
The hitmaker shared of her influences: “My inspiration comes from within.
“I chose Trap because I think it’s the modern take on rock and it perfectly represented what I was experiencing.
“For me it was a moment of contempt, of drugs. Trapping made me feel like a rocker. Little by little I got into rap and Dembow.”
She added: “I have my rock band and I play festivals with them every year.
“When I was little I loved Gloria Trevi, I spent all my time singing her songs.
“As I got older, I discovered Nina Hagen, my favorite. I also really like Janis Joplin. Rock inspires me the most.
During an interview with Billboard, she expressed similar feelings about her growing career.
Tokisha explained to the publication, “I like to explore and try new rhythms.
“I would say I have a very rocking voice because that’s the kind of music I like the most.”
She revealed: “My style is explicit. It [may come off as] but also morbid [transmits] Happiness.”
She detailed the influence of her hometown on her music and revealed: “It’s nice to come out of the barrio and share with the world what we live and our rhythms.
“Our music is being accepted and that fills me with pride. She’s really good and represents where we come from.”
