Who is Amaha?
“Lush West African Polyphony Meets Modern Innovation”
Born in Nigeria, .aMAHa. relocated to Tennessee for college shortly before she turned 16. High-key talented but low-key shy, the Singer-Songwriter took the Corporate route while nursing her creative endeavors from talent competitions to self-funded album releases. Eventually, she dabbled in open mics and surprised others and herself with her emotive voice and unique delivery. Her music fuses complex, largely West African syncopation and multi-layered polyphony with Jazz and Pop fluidity crafting a new, deliciously rich and sumptuous sound. Her writing is brave, poetic, and fresh.
.aMAHa.'s upcoming EP shares an intimate, introspective look at the journey towards healthy self-love. With several upcoming singles, .aMAHa. is poised to take the sonic world by storm and continue bridging the gap between African Music and modern innovation. She hopes to invite you into that private, peaceful, inner world - one of honest introspection and Joy.
