Artist Name: Enuma
Enuma is a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who plays an organic blend of neo-soul, folk rock, and jazz. The name Enuma means “the heavens know” in Igbo and as an artist who hails from Kitchener, Ontario and has settled in the multicultural landscape of Toronto, she proudly draws from her Jamaican and African roots for inspiration. She already has graced several stages around the city, and has performed at Culture Shock Community Arts Festival and the 106 & York Urban Arts Festival. She also was one of the featured musical performers for Whitney French’s “3 Cities” book tour.
As an advocate for helping youth reach their highest potential, Enuma was chosen to be a spokesperson for Raising the Roof’s 2012 fundraising campaign and was interviewed by Metro Morning’s Matt Galloway on CBC Radio about the issues of youth homelessness and her personal story of triumph.
