Biography

London born Amanda Homi's music is a reflection of her own musical travel adventures. At the age of seventeen she set off to see the world and a year later found herself singing Greek songs in the most popular bouzouki club in Athens.
Over the years she has written and recorded Reggae songs in Jamaica, studied Sabar drumming and dance in Senegal, played Brazilian percussion and Capoiera in Bahia, and learned to bellydance and play the doumbek and finger cymbals, inspired by a memorable performance she witnessed in a tent on the Egyptian desert. She has sung and danced round the campfire in Spain with reknowned Gypsy Flamenco artists.
She has just completed the first episode of a documentary TV series about women in world music, where she traveled to Colombia with Cantadora Toto La Momposina.
Her solo CD Drumgirls features a stellar cast of musicians from around the world, and the songs reflect her respect and love of the music from the countries she has visited. She lives in New York City and performs regularly with her eclectic ensemble, sporting a variety of colourful hats she has collected on her travels.
