Smooth, silky and saudade
According to her, her music is best described as a blend of diverse emotions, ranging from the loss of love to melancholy. She calls it 'Saudade', feel free to call it a genre in itself. Compositions that come straight from the soul, songs that aim at providing peace and comfort during these confusing and hectic times. Naima Joris only started singing when she was 27 years old, but in the meantime, she has come a long way. Besides several collaborations with her father, Chris Joris, she sang the backing vocals for Isbells and Raymond van het Groenewoud, she performed during support acts for Sal La Rocca and also played with Pascal Mohy. However, it is now time for her to start telling her own story. A story that is bursting with personal experiences. Together with Niels Van Heertum (euphonium and trumpet) and bassist Lara Rosseel, she brings subdued, tranquil music that reflects the musings of her soul. A journey through the most intimate caverns of her heart.
