Germa Adan [Haiti]

Germa Adan 

Germa Adan writes and performs a tapestry of rich vocal and stringed harmonies, influenced by the overlapping identity with cultures, especially so in the Haitian, American and British folk influences that colour her sound. Her music is also a reflection of her eclectic and diverse life experiences, including her classical music training. She is well known for her unique use of the violin as an accompaniment to her vocals, using delicate yet intricate rhythm and harmonies.
