Nailah’s been doing music since she was simply 4 and wrote her first tune at age 11! Since then, she has continued to push out a steady portfolio of Soca music rooting from her tradition.

“My music sort of paints an actual image of the place I’m from, as a result of plenty of my music is both joyful or sensual or festive or high-energy … All these issues are descriptions that I’d use to color Trinidad and Tobago, as a result of they’re all the above. It’s extraordinarily lovely, extraordinarily wealthy with tradition and historical past,” she defined.
