Angelita Jimenez - London

Angelita Jimenez is a young singer, songwriter and composer from Brazil who has a wonderfully warm and gentle vocal delivery, perfect for her bossa nova and samba-centered style. Since moving to London in 2006, she has made a name for herself performing at Ronnie Scott’s, The Pigalle, the London Latin Music Festival and opening for acts such as the James Taylor Quartet. Singing in English and Portuguese, with a combination of classic bossas and her own originals, the relaxed vibe she creates has led to comparisons to Astrud Gilberto while her rich, soft vocals are compared to those of Norah Jones.

         Nakisha Reyes - UK

Singing since the age of five years old, Nikisha wrote her first song at the age of ten. A sure sign that at such an early age, her love for music would ensure that she would endeavour to make her mark on the world in song. A global artist in every sense of the word, Nikisha was born and grew up in Trinidad. In later life this would account for her authentic Caribbean nuances that flavour some of her songs.

Nikisha’s Journey 

Her first  move was emerging on the Soca scene with her fast paced tongue-twisting song titled “Roll my Bumper,” on the “Licks Riddim” by Dutch productions. The rapid interest in her ability to sing Soca, lead to her collaboration with Darren Skerrit, known as Socachild  on her hit single “One Dance”. This immediately blew the UK Soca Market by storm. As a result, Nikisha was voted “Best UK Soca Artist 2010, at the Annual UK Calabash Awards.

Nikisha however, never puts all her eggs in one basket, and has continued to mature as an Artist, outside of the Carnival bracket.  Soca and Calypso music, is Nikisha’s  love and dedication to her roots and culture that has kept her on the Caribbean path annually at the London Nottinghill Carnival Festivities, and this genre of music, is a mere fraction/taster of Nikisha’s FULL potential.
