Maria's voice is one of those you either love or hate, and so is her music.
Uncompromising in her musical approach as well as performance she hits truth right
at it's core and strikes a chord in you ... Her clear, airy sound has been compared to
that of angels as well as wind instruments, the latter referring to her use of it as well
- Maria sings like an instrumentalist plays. This is also reflected in her use of lyrics,
as she states her point in an abstract way, making space for everyone's own story in
hers. Her compositions are as diverse as life's surprises, merging modern Jazz with
Drum N'Bass and Rock grooves as well as Indian and Classical music. You can hear
Stravinsky as well as Björk in it, Billie Holiday and Debussy, Nikhil Banerjee and Ani
DiFranco, … but most of all, Maria Neckam.
