Mariama:  Afropean Afro Folk & Jazz | Sierra Leone / Germany

Booking | Territory: DACH


Mariamas music is light and lively. On her current record “Love, Sweat and Tears” (Rising Bird Music/Bendo Music) the Parisian songwriter Mariama combines shimmering folk, filled with jazz rhythms and her soulful vocals. The single “Raindrops” already delivers a great overture. Her music is an invitation to dance and about declarations of love for West Africa, the land of her ancestors. Mariama was born in Freetown, Sierra Leone, and came to Bergisch Gladbach, Germany, when she was only one year old. In her musical career she has already worked with Adé Bantu, Patrice or Max Herre.
