Emma Ghaemmaghamy (pronounced gah (as in car) ma (as in mag) gah (as in car) me (as in me)) hails from New Zealand and is currently based in Washington DC.
Working full time as a street performer, she also plays in various clubs, bars and community events throughout the city - and often far beyond. In the last year, she has played The Whitehouse, The Kennedy Center, The National Cherry Blossom-, and Smithsonian Folklife festivals, and The Atlas Performing Arts Theater.
Prior to heading to the States in late 2014, Ghaemmaghamy, 28, had established a profile back in New Zealand as vocalist for the hard rock band Static Era. She was also a New Zealander of the Year Local Hero award recipient, honoured in 2012 for inspiring others through her music.
She has fast become an established and much-loved personality on DC's busking circuit, where she is known as the Kiwi girl who plays great songs and gives great hugs.
