BARAKA MAY

 STUDIO SINGER     VOCAL DIRECTOR     ARRANGER

 

Baraka is a seasoned professional singer for some of the world's most renowned composers and songwriters. Her work includes studio sessions, live performances, voiceover, vocal directing, contracting, and arranging.

Recording on over 300 major films, TV episodes, video games, commercials, and albums, composers and songwriters depend on her keen skills in sight-singing at lightning speed, improvising with confidence and nuance, shifting her tone and style with ease, blending with other singers, and providing authenticity in any style. An in-demand singer, Baraka takes great joy in being vocal clay and is often requested for sound-alikes, accents, and voice matching. 

Baraka enjoys exploring her vocal capabilities with a wide array of projects from animation voices to classical chamber repertoire to pop, gospel, jazz, and celebrity impressions. With passion, drive, and a healthy  dose of perfectionism, Baraka sings with the raw emotion of a storyteller, the precision of a music theory nerd, and the heart of a lifelong learner.
