Biography

Emcee, Lyrics

Aima Paule, aka AÏMA the DRMR, is a multidisciplinary artist who has been performing, as well as creating and hosting events, for more than a decade. She is co-founder of Oakland’s beloved Soulovely, a QTBIPOC dance party now going into its ninth year. Aima has lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for twenty years and continues to be inspired by the beauty and brilliance of the art, music, and activism that is fostered here. No stranger to collaboration, she believes in the power of using art and music as a bridge between communities. Aima has rocked crowds from Oakland to Barcelona as a vocalist and emcee with groups such as Jazz Mafia, J-Boogie’s Dubtronic Science, and Femme Deadly Venoms, with whom she recently recorded Femmenomenon, to be released later this year. As a visual artist, she is drawn towards natural materials, sacred geometry, healing frequencies, and ancestral wisdom and medicines as inspiration for her work.
