Feeling a bit camera shy


Jalima is one of the most dynamic artists on today’s music scene. Her style can be described as a unique blend of poetic lyrics, passionate delivery, and intelligent wordplay contained within a currant of constant positive energy. Having been a writer and a poet since the age of 10, it seems that her progression into the rhythmic world of hip-hop was inevitable. Growing up amid the culturally diverse artistic scenes of Philadelphia Pennsylvania her sound developed into a fluid combination of a deep respect for history and innovative style. Jalima was surrounded by an eclectic mix of musical styles ranging from jazz, hip-hop, rock to classical, and has been influenced by genres of sci-fi, philosophy and the traditionally great literary works. Although being deemed an emcee for lack of a better description anyone can tell by listening to Jalima that her musical explorations delve way beyond hip-hop’s norm.

With topics that usually in some way deal with appreciating who you are as a person and recognizing your own self worth she creates bridges through music that breaks down barriers of pretense. There is an honesty and openness in her style that most people find comforting and engaging. Despite tackling many of today’s tough issues the lighthearted side of Jalima’s personality clearly shines through, making her music stand galaxies apart from the crowd. Jalima has created a sound that is fun, original, and from the heart.

Anyone listening gets the sense they have been invited to share a life changing experience manifested through poetry and art.
With a uniqueness full of life and energy her live performances have been known to move Jalima as well as the audience to tears. Jalima is most assuredly a dynamic artist whose music will continue to build bridges between people of all backgrounds with a message of love, unity and beauty.

This unconventional emcee says,” If you have to call my music anything call it Quantum Love Light Music, because I’m all about generating a sound that spreads the message of love while allowing the light of truth to shine through me as I advance through this life at quantum speeds.”
