Boomtown - jazz / songNaima Joris made an impressive debut last year with her first self-titled EP. Five intensely dark and moody numbers that try to create a space for the pain and sorrow of the loss of someone dear. Fragile and personal stories that touch a universal chord and from which you, as a listener, could draw comfort, understanding and strength.
With the singles “Soon”, “Bellybutton” and “My Home”, Naima immediately delivered her strong musical presence. The title of Radio 1 “Belpopbelofte”, a much appreciated passage in Vive le Vélo and an MIA nomination for “Breakthrough” are just a few of the many highlights that followed.
In the autumn of 2022, this story will be continued in the form of a first full album with which Naima and her band will hit the club circuit in 2023. Expect a unique setting, songs that touch and comfort. A moody evening that will not leave you unmoved.
