It’s been a busy year for Marieme. She kicked it off sharing the stage on live television with Akon, and Baba Maal. She recently finished a residency at Nublu and the last night sold out. It was heavily attended by label scouts. She released the original video for ‘Ask For Help’ and the track was featured in the teaser trailer for The Season Premiere of Iyanla: Fix My Life on Oprah’s OWN Network, an episode of the CBS mini-series event The Red Line and also heard on the Netflix series Free Rein. She released a video celebrating her home country called ‘Fi Moy Senegal.’ Originally on YouTube only in Senegal to celebrate their independence day in April, it garnered so much attention it was released on all streaming platforms in June. Her song ‘What’s Cool’ was featured in the Amy Schumer film I Feel Pretty and released as a single by Sony. She was featured on Vogue’s Instagram as well as BET’s for LA Pride and will soon play the prestigious Annie O’s Standard Series at The Standard East Village on November 4th.
Marieme is becoming a household name in her home country and has already shared the stage and is collaborating with numerous notable players such as African music legends Youssou N’dour and Pape et Cheikh. She left Africa as a youngster to come to the United States with dreams of pursuing a music career. Marieme constantly strives to become more conscious about the world around her and how she could work to connect people with the healing potential of music which is reflected in her songwriting. Now dividing her time between New York City and Los Angeles, expect a lot more from Marieme. She is currently in the studio with plans for a debut LP to be released early next year
