She’s a big admirer of Nick Drake, Jeff Buckley, Asmahan Feirouz, Veni Vidi Vici, Billie Holiday, and Nina Simone. Influenced by the sounds of eastern oriental and folk music, she started to record her own songs and compositions about ten years ago. “The will to create something and to be proud of it makes me want to continue in life. I let the music guide me and language choose me” says Neh Ma. Her music reaches people searching for uniqueness and deep emotions.
