Zimena was born singing and her soft and raspy voice is unique in its depth and breadth. She’d often say God has given her a gift of beauty to be expressed in multiple ways and that singing crowns it all. Indeed, while her creative expressions as a writer, painter, fashion designer and entrepreneur eclectically tell their own stories, with music, she comes truly into her own.
Zimena credits her love of music to being surrounded by and listening to a varied musical Selections like Rock, Pop, R&B, Reggae, Classics, Hip hop, Country, Soul, Dance, and Jazz from birth and learnt most of life lessons through music. This is why her music tells simple stories and life lessons that people of all walks of life can easily relate to.
Zimena has been writing music and singing all her life. She has a B.Sc. in Economics and a Masters in Business Administration and Management and was a successful Consultant in Human Resources, Design and Business before finally succumbing to the call of music professionally in March 2011. Not one for half-measures, she is giving this her full attention.
Zimena is a beautiful soul, in and out and a strong, down to earth, honest, funny, unconventional, family-oriented woman who takes her role as a daughter, sister, friend, aunt, wife and mother individually seriously. She loves reading, writing, watching movies, cooking, travelling and enjoying the outdoors.
“Music answers all my questions, fills most of my needs and qualifies all my memories". "Combining music with my art and writing simply means I paint life’s pictures with brush, words and sound.” Zimena
