Mariame broke out into the Canadian music scene in 2015 with the release of her award-winning debut EP Bloom. Blending elements of R&B, pop, and EDM, Mariame delivers irresistible music as electric as her stage presence. Mariame has been steadily touring the communities in her territories since she was 13 years old, and has garnered a faithful following in the James Bay Cree communities of Quebec. In 2013, she was given the Rising Star Award, by the Cree Native Arts & Crafts Association. In 2015, Mariame signed a record contract with N’we Jinan; a national scope music initiative, which produced and distributed Bloom. The project peaked at #3 on the iTunes Pop Charts, with two singles “As Long as You Are Here” & “Electric” reaching #1 on the NCI FM National Indigenous Music Countdown. Both songs received heavy rotation on SiriusXM Canada Indigenous Peoples Radio channel. In 2017, Mariame’s Bloom won Best Pop Album at the Indigenous Music Awards presented by SiriusXM Canada.
