Each month, Guelph Arts Council features a video of one of it’s musical members. For March, they visit multidisciplinary artist Nefe.
Having most recently performed a virtual set for Winter Pride in Guelph, Nefe’s latest single “Lipstick Wish” found its way to CBC Music’s Top 20 chart in December. For today’s video, we visit Nefe’s 2017 EP and it’s beautiful title track, “Mama”.
Adept listeners might be able to trace Nefe’s genre-defying sound back to her endless influences from folk to pop or R&B to reggae but what listeners will actually hear is an idiosyncratic sound that can only be described as 3-dimensional – affecting the listener’s heart, mind and soul. Nefe’s power has been described as her ability to make you feel before you can think. Her vocal range and precision vibrates with the healing tradition of ancient wisdom that belies her youth. Nefe’s voice is the salve that cuts through the pandemonium of the modern world.
Find more information on Nefe’s website and Facebook.
And now for your viewing, listening and emotional pleasure (especially if you have a great maternal figure in your life), here’s Nefe’s “Mama”.
