The name Niema (pronounced Nigh-ee'-ma) means graceful, pleasant and creative, and has its counterparts in Swahili, Arabic, Chinese and Hebrew.

Niema has lived in L.A. county area since 1983, when she relocated from her native Philadelphia. Prolific in the spoken and written word, Niema recited live and recorded her poetry on college underground radio stations WKDU-FM (Drexel University) and WRTI-FM (Temple University) in the Philly area. She also co-hosted the talk show METAMORPHOSIS with Ron Alexander, where they interviewed on the air current politicos and aired issues of the day. Ron Alexander has gone on to publish several books, as well as doing public speaking and book-signing engagements. You can check out his page on Amazon.com here:

The material she created has been included in her present book, "SILVER RAIN", along with several other excerpts. She is currently working on a follow-up book.

Niema had her own band at the age of 14 and toured locally for several years. She then joined other bands and travelled stateswide and to Canada and the Nova Scotia areas before relocating to Los Angeles. Niema's last band band that she worked with was called PROMISES, a 5-piece ensemble with Rudy Bishop as bass player and band band leader out of her home town of Philly. Below are pictures of Rudy with his new band, BOUNCE. Along with playing bass, Rudy is prolific in singing, song-writing, composing, playing keyboards and also guitar.

Niema wishes the best for Rudy, and his band, BOUNCE, and hopes they can one day soon coordinate in studio for other projects.

Niema continued to pursue her singing career once in LA, including going on tour to Japan with a local band, lent her voice to several album projects, and appeared in music videos. As both Fashion and Music have always been important to Niema, she attended the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (L.A.), and later Brooks College in Long Beach, where she learned the rudiments of design, sketching, and sewing. Through her background in accessory design while back east, she incorporated these teachings into her love for creating 'by hand' various items, as seen on display here at her site.
