Naïka is a singer/songwriter born in Miami, Florida, who
developed an interest in music from an early age while living and
traveling internationally with her family.
Growing up with the influence of European,
African and Caribbean cultures has shaped her both musically and
individually, and continues to define her artistic perspective and
music reflects a blend of pop, soul with a World Music influence.
Naïka graduated in Performance at
Berklee College of Music in Boston. Within her first year as a student, she was selected
to tour with GRAMMY-winning artist Michael Bolton, and participate on
NBC’s The Voice. Her songwriting ability also earned her a second place

In her two years at Berklee, she has been involved in a variety of
performances, including the school's Perfect Pitch
Concert where she was selected for two consecutive years. Naïka has brought forth her cultural background by singing in
French for members of the European consulate, but also in Creole in her recent rendition of the traditional Haitian song "Papa Gede(Bel Gason)" which reached 200,000 views in two short days.
Naïka continues to develop her vocal and songwriting expertise
with an exemplary work ethic, that will stand her in good stead
throughout her journey as an artist, wherein perseverance, dedication
and hard work are essential.
