In her early teens Vimala Rowe left England for the Far East where she quickly established herself as vocalist with the successful rap band TKO and then as a solo artist, writing and recording a hit album which included guitar legend Tommy Emmanuel.
She then spent a year studying Hindustani Classical vocals in Nagpur India, which profoundly influenced her future style. Back in England she made the eponymous EP 'Vimala' with Simon Horn, a recording of original compositions which garnered the Indy Music award for Best Soul, Jazz, Funk act, 2008.
Since then she has gone on to establish herself on the London Jazz Scene as a remarkable live performer, appearing with such luminaries as John Etheridge, Bobby Wellins, Jonathan Gee and others.
Her performances have captivated audiences everywhere with notable appearances at Ronnie Scott's with the Alex Webb Band, The London Jazz Festival (Crazy Coqs) with John Etheridge and at The Leicester Square Theatre in the musical Cafe Society Swing. Her mix of jazz sophistication and swing, soulful passion and a hint of Indian exoticism is enthralling.
