Full of heart and soul Naima is ready to record and release a single, music video, and continue her way toward her debut record.
Thanks for visiting my Kickstarter project. I'm Naima, an Oakland based singer/songwriter and performer and I am oh so ready to make my debut into the music industry. Yeah!
A bit about me:
It's definitely been a long road, full of surprises and turns of every nature. As a young woman I studied voice and music theory, and sung in jazz and classical choirs for more than 8 years. For two years in a row I auditioned and was chosen for the New York State Music Association jazz choir from a pool of thousands of students all of over New York. I knew my passion at a young age was singing and performance but decided to take several years away from music to explore other areas of my life that were necessary to build.
Being a first generation Lebanese-Arab-American it was important for me to immerse myself in my cultural heritages to further learn about where I came from and who I was becoming. I spent time living in Lebanon in the summers and continued my studies and community organizing work in the Bay Area the rest of the year. During this time I studied and received my M.A. in social and cultural anthropology and dove into the world of social justice, healing, and social change. Feel free to write me to ask more about my experiences!
About two years ago after finishing school and being steeped in the world of social advocacy, I decided it was finally time to put all of my effort into my craft as a musician, singer, songwriter and performer. I've literally spent almost every day practicing, strategizing, and growing in order to be in a place where I'm ready to share what I've learned.
It's about launching myself into the professional music world. It takes resources to make stellar recordings and I only have the highest expectations for myself and anything I put out there. I have a strong voice and soulful songs to share and need your help to make it happen! My hope is for my music to inspire even just a little bit of freedom, love and change in people's lives. The growing and practice never stops, but I know I'm ready to make an impact. Your support means the world to me!
