NEeMA at Montreal Jazz Festival 2010
The gigantic summer music celebration features 11 days of non-stop entertainment, from noon to midnight, right in the heart of downtown Montreal. Several city blocs are closed to traffic, as right of way is given exclusively to pedestrians, creating a festive and secure spot with cafés and bistros, an art gallery, street performers and a musical park for children. It’s the summer celebration par excellence for people of all ages and origins, a cultural breath of fresh air, and a place for incredible musical discoveries with influence such as JAZZ, BLUES, LATIN-JAZZ, BRAZILIAN, CUBAN, AFRICAN, REGGAE, CONTEMPORARY, ELECTRONICA...
For NEeMA a song always begins with a seed - a lyric or a melody. On several occasions she has found herself singing a chorus of a yet to be written song. “The more I write songs, the more I realize it’s about uncovering the story that wants to be told, not writing the one I have in mind.”
