With no musical background whats so ever, Mim Suleiman left her job to pursue her dream. Zanzibar (Tanzania) born singer songwriter performer Mim Suleiman's eclectic soulful being revels in her East African vocals and percussion traditions. She has been described as a fiery singer who never fails to indulge her audience! She is a versitile vocalist and vibrant performer. "Think of Miriam Makeba, meets Aretha Franklin........Mim show's stopping performace is already the talk of the town" (Dave Jarvis.) ''Soulful, soaring, deep, and divine, Mim's presence and music is a blessing'' (mpenzi) She is a recorded artist and has played from Asia to Europe. Her music ranges form soul, blues, funk, house, jazz, rock and dance tracks, to her African heritage. . She writes in English and Swahili (her native tongue) and sings in a variety of languages including Fula. She is currently working hard to complete her first album, as well as a collaberation project with Rafiki Jazz, samples of which can be heard on this site.

Mim Suleimans love and enthusiasm for the melodies and rhythms she shares in her workshops make your heart rise up and your vocal chords join in before youre even aware of it. She sings out lines for us to mimic and throws out sarongs so we can tie them to our hips and bop to her bouncy East African grooves. Exactly! she says after we attempt to wind our tongues around the complicated sounds coming from her smiley mouth As long as it soundslike it anyway, and we know that whatever it is that were actually singing, were still enjoying it as much as she is.
