About Get in touch
Gesilayefa Azorbo is a Toronto-based writer, photographer and filmmaker. She has a deep interest in music, film, literature, and pop culture. She was born in Nigeria, grew up in Kenya, currently lives in Canada, and considers herself a Third Culture Kid.
Her work explores themes related to music, creativity, identity, and compelling personalities. She is also inspired by cinéma vérité and direct cinema, immersing herself as much as possible in the worlds of those she documents.
She likes (and often writes about) music, movies, books and people. She recently completed an MFA in Documentary Media from Ryerson University, and premiered her first film, a short documentary called Indie Womyn, profiling the process of independent singer-songwriter Alysha Brilla as she recorded her Juno-nominated album, Womyn.
When not listening to music, she is most likely humming it under her breath.
