Captivating Folk Melodies & Honest Lyrics 2017 Best New Talent at the International Portuguese Awards
Winner of Best New Talent at the International Portuguese Music Awards (2017), MTV Cover of the Month February and voted Best Musician in the South Okanagan by Okanagan Life Magazine (2015), Nikita’s music speaks to the heart and touches the soul. It has a familiarity that resonates within one’s self.
The folk melodies and honest lyrics mixed with breathy yet strong vocals captivate audiences from the vibrant young to the charming old. She is professional, creative and enjoys performing for crowds of all sizes adapting her shows from a duo, trio to a four-piece band full of rich harmonies.
