MARIAA SIGA, whose real name is Mariama Siga Goudiaby, is a young artist from Casamance (Southern Senegal). She is a composer and performer. In 2009, she won a talent competition and was thereafter spotted by the leader of the group called Joan of Arc (Senegal), who helped her refine her style and further develop her musical skills.

In 2010, as a resident of the Palen studio, she played a role in the film "Mon Rêve", for the Senegalese channel RDV. Already accustomed to the traditional rhythms of her native Casamance, her curiosity led her to discover new musical styles considered elitist such as, blues or jazz, which she fuses with African sounds.


Her artistic approach brings her closer to the world music universe. In 2016, she was one of the winners of the Tremplin competition at the Festival des Vieilles pirogues. In 2017, she released two singles "Ya sama none" and "Asekaw".

On a reggae riddim by Asha D, one of the founding members of ARTIKAL BAND, MARIAA SIGA sang, in Wolof and in French, her happiness in being a mother and the love she has for her son. With SAMA NENE, a true hymn to maternal love, recorded during her maternity, MARIAA SIGA also wants to show that it is possible to lead her life as an artist, as a woman, and as a mother without giving up her dreams.

The brilliance of the vocal pearl of Casamance From her native Casamance to Europe, MARIAA SIGA has had a meteoric trajectory over the past 10 years. From the first artist competitions in Senegal to The Voice in France through the One Riddim Contest of the reggae label Baco Records, from his nominations to Reggae victories until the Prix final RFI discoveries, this young artist has risen through the ranks with incredible maturity.
