Bio

About Vahimiti:

VAHIMITI is an Italian singer-songwriter who was raised in the mythical Maori culture and music of French Polynesia, where she also has lived and to which she owes her Polynesian name. Having grown up listening to the pulses of soul, hip hop, r&b, blues, and jazz, Vahimiti's music represents a mixture of these different influences. After her experience performing in various bands, orchestras, vocal ensembles like The Sessions Voices, going on tour as vocalist for artists like Mario Biondi and Tony Momrelle (Incognito) and studio recording (Franco Micalizzi and more), Vahimiti released her debut project Motown Dream produced by the native Detroit musician Vernon D. Hill (Dwele,Slum Village,Bahamadia,Joy Denalane ).
Motown dream is an original and modern journey throughout the Motor City vibes with a mediterranean feel and have involved the participation of numerous European, as well as American artists, including the finger drum player David “Fingers” Haynes from Atlanta, the Italian bass player and co-author Andrea Celestino, Axel Reinemer from Jazzanova and the American rapper Detroit Mixo from StereoBoyz.
Vahimiti is now working on a new soulful project. Stay tuned!
