Bay Area native of Puerto-Rican ancestry, FEMI has established her musical presence with powerfully sweet vocals, passionately poetic song writing and sultry production. Her music has been defined as neo-funk & soul but its roots go much deeper with an infusion of afro- latin/carribean rhythms, jazz, hip-hop, salsa and rock, blending perfectly to create a unique sound all her own.

...a range encompassing everything from jazz to neo-soul,
Femi says she's simply listening to her own inner voice.
She'd prefer to let the music categorize itself, Adding that
as a creative person, you want to experiment with different
forms. --Eric Arnold, East Bay Express (Oct 12, 0005)
A veteran of Oakland's cultural arts scene, Femi's been a
dancer, hip-hop MC, spoken-word poet and performance
artist, in addition to a singer. Her stylistic versatility extends
to her music, a blend of soul, funk, jazz, salsa, house, hip-
hop and reggae that she's dubbed neo-funk.
