We’re hearing that the great Salome Bey has passed away.
Although born in New Jersey, she made Toronto her home in the 60’s and became part of our musical landscape.
A legend.


I am so sorry to hear that the great Salome Bey has passed. A powerful singer and composer, truly an icon. May she rest ever in power. Much love to
and to all who were close to her.

I remember when Salome Bey came to Sir Sanford Fleming Secondary School in Toronto to give a concert. It was a big deal!
