Zimena is a true born talented artist gifted with a unique soft and raspy voice. 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.
Born 20th of March 1974 to a music loving family, Zimena credits her love of music to being surrounded by and listening to a wide variety of music like Rock, Pop, R&B, Reggae, Urban traditional, Hip hop, Country, Soul, Dance, Gospel and Jazz from birth and learnt most of life’s lessons through music. This is why her music always carries a message and tells life stories that people of all walks of life can easily relate to. When asked how she feels about music, she says “Music answers all my questions, fills most of my needs and qualifies all my memories".
Zimena has been writing music and singing all her life. She has a B.Sc. in Economics and a Masters in Business Administration/Management and was a successful Consultant in Human Resources, Design and Business before finally succumbing fully to the call of music professionally in March 2011. Not one for half-measures, she is giving this her full attention. When asked how she manages to fit her 3 great passions, music, art and writing into her life she simply says, I paint life’s pictures with brush, words and sound.”
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, nature walks and enjoys the outdoors.
