Nabiha: Danish African Pop Soul Singer/Songwriter

So I have a brand new favourite singer.

Her name? Nabiha

And her music is so damn infectious. It’s that blend of retro pop soul that we’ve come to know and love from artists like Amy Winehouse, Duffy and Janelle Monae and it’s fun, upbeat and ridiculous catchy.

Like dance around the room with a hairbrush in your hand and lip synching to the songs catchy. Yes I so totally did that.

Born the eldest of six brothers and sisters, Nabiha’s musical beginnings flourished in her home with music, dancing and singing. Nabiha’s strong positive female image was vastly inspired at home as well, “I grew up with a welcoming, loving, strong Mother and Grandmother figures who taught me a lot, I was constantly inspired by love and people around me, I feel lucky.”

As a young girl, Nabiha explored music at school by taking lessons in various instruments until the encouragement of a teacher led her to try singing, her first performance a hit, shortly followed by experiments in various genres of music including an all female ska band, rock, jazz, urban, r&b and electronic/house.
All of which are woven into the fabric of her music today.

A very private person, Nabiha enjoys connecting with her fans through her music; expressing feelings through her lyrics can have an impact on another person, they identify with a situation or a feeling when they listen.

One of Nabiha’s favorite moments of connecting is being on stage while fans sing her lyrics from the audience. During “Deep Sleep” that connection gets very personal when fans sing an African lullaby Nabiha’s Mother used to sing to her as a child.

Nabiha is very proud of both her Danish and African heritages, she tries to stay connected to Africa and visits as frequently as possible. “The way people care for each other in Africa is inspiring, happy, positive, they share what little they have with you, everyone should try to visit in their lifetime.”

In February 2010, Nabiha released her debut album  Cracks to critical acclaim. More Cracks, the revamped re-release came out in September of 2011. “Deep Sleep,” the first single from the album, premiered on MTVU and was named “Song of the Day” on international tastemaker site Popjustice. After non-stop live television and radio performances in Denmark, Germany, and Poland, “Deep Sleep” could be heard everywhere from television to radio to film.

I love her and her music x 1000. And the best news is she’s back in the studio recording a new album that will be out later this year.

In the meantime get to know Nabiha…you’ll be finding a spot on your iPod for her THAT I guarantee.

Dave Matthews Band

 

 

 

 

 

 

So Dave Matthews Band is heading out on an amphitheatre tour and they are making a stop in Toronto at the Molson Canadian Amp on June 2.

Who’s excited? What? Me? Shutty.

SO AM.

My all time have song? Crash Into Me. And seriously with lyrics like this how can you not love this song?

You’ve got your ball

You’ve got your chain

Tied to me tight tie me up again

Who’s got their claws

In you my friend

Into your heart I’ll beat again

Sweet like candy to my soul

Sweet you rock

And sweet you roll

Lost for you I’m so lost for you

You come crash into me

And I come into you

I come into you

In a boys dream

In a boys dream

Touch your lips just so I know

In your eyes, love, it glows so

I’m bare boned and crazy for you

When you come crash

Into me, baby

And I come into you

In a boys dream

In a boys dream

If I’ve gone overboard

Then I’m begging you

To forgive me

In my haste

When I’m holding you so girl

Close to me

Oh and you come crash

Into me, baby

And I come into you

Hike up your skirt a little more

And show the world to me

Hike up your skirt a little more

And show your world to me

In a boys dream.. In a boys dream

Oh I watch you there

Through the window

And I stare at you

You wear nothing but you

Wear it so well

Tied up and twisted

The way I’d like to be

For you, for me, come crash

Into me
