Last week, Miriam Elhaji performed a soulful set in front of tons of fans who enjoyed the beautiful evening of music, drinks and food! Check them out in the video below!

With a sound that recalls Joan Baez and Buffy Sainte-Marie along with the crudeness of Delta Blues, it is difficult to believe that perceptive singer-songwriter Miriam Elhajli is only 19. Born and raised in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Elhajli grew up in a town with a rich history of Folk music where landmarks such as Club Passim allowed artists like Bob Dylan to begin their careers. Coming from a Venezuelan and Moroccan background, she became interested in the traditional folkloric music of her parents at an early age where she would sing in both Spanish and French. In the summer of 2013, Elhajli embarked on a musical journey alone to London where she would come to play at some of the most renowned clubs and festivals in England, such as The Cambridge Folk Festival, Leigh On Sea Folk Festival, and The Troubadour Club. Miriam currently studies at Berklee College Of Music where she is a Performance major and an English minor. She intends to become a philosopher.
