ABOUT

I've been singing and performing my whole life and have experience with multiple genres and styles of music. I have sang in over 20 languages. I can accompany myself on acoustic guitar and I also play middle eastern drums. I'm 26, working professional, Berklee College of Music graduate.

I am looking to have 2 different bands or one band that does multiple genres. One band would be a cover band playing American styles, especially more soulful genres. The other would be a world music fusion band including songs from the Mediterranean, Middle East, Balkans, Romani people, India, North Africa, Latin America, and more. Arranging our own versions of folk songs from different countries as well as originals.
If you are interested in either band, let me know. Especially if you play a non-American instrument such as oud, sitar, bouzouki, world percussion, etc.
