Mama Miriama Short Info

Deutsch nach unten:

Guitarist-Singer-Songwriter Mama Miriama has always been on the path of the musician/traveler. Her quest for music has brought her to five continents. Stints in India, West Africa, Europe and Mexico mixed with her lifelong love of good 'ol RocknRoll, American style, have imbued her with her unique instrumental and vocal style. Her solo and group performances showcase her multi-instrumental talents on guitar, violin, and vocals. Her own original songs are mixed in with reworkings of traditional tunes and chants from many sources, interpretations and translations of the songs of songwriters met worldwide and new renditions of select covers and jazzy standards. Mama Miriama Band´s music has no cultural or musical boundaries.

Over the years, Mama Miriama has appeared at Festivals, Theatres Clubs and events in USA, Mexico, Italy, Gambia, France, Spain, Finland, India, and Germany sharing stage and bill with musicians such as Manu Dibango, Jimmy Cliff, Michael Franti, Joan Armatrading, John Mayall, Phish, Laura Love Band, Soig Sibiril, guru guru and many other great artists.

She has appeared onstage in Germany, Austria and and Italy at international festivals including Reggae Chiemsee Festival, Woodstock Dornstadt ,Afrika Tage Vienna, Sunsplash Austria, Tollwood München, the legendary Finkenbach Festival, Bardentreffen Festival Nürmberg, Zugluft Festival Tirol and many more.

“Far and Wide”, the new solo Album by Mama Miriama is a collection of original songs about travel, love and adventure on the road. In 2005 she relocated full time to Europe, working as sidewoman guitarist, violinist and singer with Aruban star Wally Warning, Tormenta Jobarteh´s multi cultural world music outfit Jobarteh Kunda and other projects in varied genres; reggae, jazz, blues, and folk. Both Wally and Tormenta are featured guests on the new album.

The release coincided with the launch of a crowdfunding campaign to fund “The Groovy African Ladies Music School” (GALs). Mama Miriama has run Rockschool programs in USA and for the past 10 years, in Germany. Now she is bringing her program to Gambia, West Africa, where she will establish a music school for girls and women at Fandema Women development Center in Tujereng. A long believer in the power of music to enact positive change in diverse communities, she was inspired to bring her program to girls and women in Africa after doing a volunteer guitar workshop at Fandema in 2013. She has modified her program specifically for the women at Fandema, many of whom have never gone to school at all. The modified program is entrepreneurial by design and will teach participating women from the ground up to learn about the many aspects of an independent music/ entertainment industry.
All the profits of Miriama´s shows and merchandise sales are donated to The Groovy African Ladies Music School.
