Few people are born with the gift of instantly touching people's hearts with their voice. Azania is one of them. Originally from Sierra Leone, West Africa, this multi-cultural artist was born and raised in the U.S. & in Geneva, Switzerland. From the age of 6 she knew that singing was her calling and she loved seeing the joy her voice brought to people. "It's a beautiful way to share emotions and connect with people on a deep level" she says.



Azania's captivating voice, powerful energy and positive charisma make her a phenomenal performer and a joy to see on stage. She has performed hundreds of concerts around Europe and in Asia, and looks forward to travelling worldwide. "It's always wonderful and fascinating to see how universal music is. It surpasses so many cultural boundaries and speaks straight to the heart". She has sung in major music festivals, such as the world-renowned Montreux Jazz and was invited to perform for the President of Sierra Leone. In Paris, she won first prize in the French T.V. competition 'Graines de Star' on M6TV. Broadcast to over 4 million viewers, it was the first French show similar to 'American Idol'.

A true chameleon, Azania loves exploring various facets of her voice in different styles of music. During her 12 years+ of classical opera voice training, she sang in many different bands of not only soul and funk, but also jazz to disco, electro/house to gospel, reggae to musical theater. For her upcoming album, several songs are inspired by the groovy soul and funk era of the 1970's. However Azania's compositions evolve from diverse musical influences. ďI simply compose what I feel, and Iím inspired by different styles. To me whatís most important is the message and emotion of each song. If you feel it, thatís all that countsĒ. Reflecting her warm personality, Azania's lyrics are often enriched with uplifting and positive messages, and her highly-anticipated debut album will be released in 2012.
