Senegal

Strong of a cultural mixing by its Mauritanian and Senegalese origins, Marema makes its entry in the musical landscape with "Femme d'affaire", title of its first single. Very quickly, this tube makes the tour of Senegal and spreads in the sub-region and allows him to win the RFI Prize 2014, the Jury Prize of the SIMA (Salon International de la Musique Africaine), the Jury Prize Star Africa Sound, a nomination to the Afrima, the Francophone Prize of the festival Musique Métisses in Nigeria. Best Female Artist in African Inspirational Music in ALL AFRICA MUSIC AWARDS.
Cradled in her youth by her mother's musical tastes, she discovered a passion for music that she transformed into a strong ambition by enrolling in the Cultural Center Douta Seck, a music school where she developed her vocal skills. During several years, she acquired a great experience of the stage as a chorus girl for several artists. It in that center that Marema was discovered by the arranger and guitarist Mao Otayeck (former bandleader of Alpha Blondy, and who has collaborated with Steve Wonder, Salif Keïta, Tony Allen). He arranges and co- produces the hit ''Femme d'Affaire''.
Thanks to the RFI prize and its partners (French Institute, OIF, Sacem), Marema conquered the stages of the continent through a big tour that took her to 15 countries in Southern Africa and the Indian Ocean for highly acclaimed concerts in 18 cities. Since summer 2015 she toured frequently in Europe and played prestiges festivals like Musiques Métisses in Angoulême, Africa festival Würzburg, Africa Oye in Liverpool or Afro-Pfingsten in Winterthur.
