Meriem Ben Amor on SoundBetter

I'm a female polyglot songwriter and vocalist. I'm also an electronic music production student at Berklee. I sing in English, French, Spanish, Arabic and more. I released 1 album, 1 remix EP and 2 singles last year collaborating with a two time Grammy nominee producer. I can turn a simple beat into a unique haunting track (melody, lyrics & vocals)

Biography:

Meriem Ben Amor is a Tunisian-Canadian Singer: A unique voice with "Warm and Ethereal" tone that blends the richness of the eastern ornaments to the softness and clarity of the western music. Meriem is a pluri-disciplinary musician: she sings, plays string instruments and percussion. She’s is a polyglot artist who speaks and sings in Arabic, French, Spanish and English. Her exposure to many cultural influences allowed her to sing in other languages like Romani, Ladino, Azeri, Farsi and Romanian.

At a very young age, Meriem grew up joining her father's soulful Sufi chanting, she learned the violin when she was 12, classical guitar when she was 17 and spent the past decade studying and playing the piano. In Tunisia, Meriem studied the Arabic Maqam and the Tunisian Malouf while finishing her bachelor degree in electronic engineering.

After moving to Canada, she deepened her knowledge in Classical Music Theory and took several composition master classes and advanced workshops.

She performs with "The Roma Jazz Ensemble": A World Music ensemble based in Vancouver led by the violin virtuoso Lache Cercel.

In 2019, Meriem met with the two-time Grammy nominee DJ and member of the NARAS "Carmen Rizzo" and started a very special partnership that led to her debut album "Once Upon a Time".
