“One of the most important singers of all times”
The Washington Post
A World Class Vocalist and Percussionist
Imani "Vocalist Imani's soul and spirit is the answer to jazz fans' prayers."
Mike Joyce – The Washington Post

As a vocalist, you could not ask for a more world class virtuoso. Imani has been on numerous recordings and there is no question that the music she conjures follows the same route. Her illustrious talents have graced many albums and soundtracks, including the National Geographic Television’s Explorer Series, most notably the Emmy-nominated film, the Jane Goodall Biography. She has also graced the stages of many festivals and venues, such as the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Curaçao Jazz Festival, San Antonio Jazz Festival and the Montreal International Jazz Festival.

Born in South Carolina, Imani has been singing since the tender age of 5. She sang with various groups in the area from her early childhood through high school. While attending the University of South Carolina she began to perform professionally in musical theater and in a local dive, Bogie’s Café. After graduating with a B.A. in Journalism, Imani moved to Boston to pursue her music. She took voice training at the New England Conservatory of Music and the Berklee School of Music, where she met and was inspired by Pat Metheny.
