Heal and Howl
with
kiva simova

A voice like chunks of pastel child's chalk dipped in potent manuka honey, sprinkled with threads of finest saffron, setting off serenely down a river destined for a waterfall of emotional intensity.

Think Jane Siberry meets Bobby McFerrin and Lisa Gerrard, and they set off on a magic carpet ride through exotic lands, with hair raising overtones resounding off the hills.

Canadian Kiva Simova continues to expand the horizons of western overtone singing (two pitches simultaneously from one voice), as a pioneer bringing these skills into the realms of eclectic jazzy pop/ experimental/ world/ alt singer songwriter. While playing keyboards and sucking on slippery elm bark.

On this site, you may get acquainted with a diverse body of work that stretches musical and geographical boundaries in surprising ways.
