NAAMA GHEBER is a New York-based jazz vocalist inspired by the emotionaly direct compositions of Rodgers and Hart, Fields and Hugh, Cole Porter and other great composers and lyricist of the 1930’s and ‘40’s. Possessed with an urbane and elegant voice, Gheber’s sensitive interpretation and crisp phrasing have become recognizable elements of her signature style and timeless appeal.
Naama was born in 1991 to aspiring scientists in Be’er Sheva, a southern city in the Negev desert. When she was four years old, the family relocated to Baltimore MD, for a period of four years. “When I think of it, that was probably where my infatuation with American culture and music was first formed” she recalls. Her parents thought it best for her to study piano. That was where music first entered my life, but after ten years of classical piano, I kind of got tired of it. I realized that I actually wanted to sing.
