“in the midst of all the static, a voice of true feeling arises – a rare event!” – Leonard Cohen (about NEeMA)
Montreal-based singer-songwriter NEeMA seamlessly melds elements of world music, folk, and jazz with a good measure of pop. Her presence on and off stage is powerful and charismatic, and her voice is honest and unique. An inveterate spokesperson for world peace, her second album, Watching You Think, has gotten rave reviews since its recent release.
