The award-winning singer and humanitarian from Brooklyn is back with an important in new EP "I AM ENOUGH". The artist is an incredible human being and her career is more than impressive. Author, music critic, journalist and filmmaker Nelson George described Maya as an artist who is constantly “electrifying audiences with her emotive style and vocal...delivers with heart and soul every time you see her." In addition to releasing three critically acclaimed albums, Maya’s boundless energy and four-octave vocal range make her an in-demand collaborator for any artist seeking to bring unabashed honesty, passion, and soulfulness to their projects.
Maya Azucena earned a Grammy Certificate for singing the duet “Let Her Dance” on Stephen Marley’s Grammy Award winning album “Mind Control.” Maya’s latest March 2022 Marley collab, “Mr. Bojangles”, can be heard on Celebrating Nina: A Reggae Tribute to Nina Simone. Maya has toured over 40 countries and, in her role as a cultural ambassador for the United States State Department, 12+ of these were Humanitarian tours sponsored by American Embassies. In March 2022, Azucena represented America as a performer at the International Expo in Dubai. In 2019, Maya embarked on a 17-country European tour as lead singer for HipHop-Rock group, Brass Against. She also performed in festivals in Indonesia, South Africa, Croatia, Brazil, and Haiti, among others.
Feeling a duty towards others, Maya uses music to share important and impactful messages. In a world where people are constantly besieged with circumstances that degrade them, the inspirational and life-giving anthems heard on “I Am Enough” capture the fierce urgency of the moment. The EP possesses unbridled energy that allows Maya’s inspirational messages to go down easily. The hats of activist and entertainer fit comfortably on her head because Maya is both conscious and self-aware. She knows that the message will be lost if the music’s not good. We can only hope that the six anthems will reach as many ears as possible.
Don't forget - As Maya says, we are all enough and worth it so let's embrace ourselves.
