Naima spent her early childhood in Sao Paulo Brazil to a Greek/English mother and a Brazilian father. She was exposed to a diverse range of music from an early age. Naima and her family moved to South London when she was seven. As a teenager, Naima began attending shows, mostly at the Windmill Brixton. At the tender age of 15, she and a group of friends decided to start making music which would eventually turn into her first band Goat Girl. After six years of touring the world and playing bass in the band, Naima felt like it was the right time to leave, mostly due to a desire for a change in musical direction.

This change has led Naima to her debut offering “30 Degrees/Berimbau”, via Sub Pop in November 2021, receiving acclaim from Stereogum, BBC Radio 6, Clash, Line of Best Fit, Brooklyn Vegan, Our Culture, etc. This was shortly followed by "Every Morning" in Feb 22. These songs were written by Naima, with production and arrangements from long-time collaborator Joel Burton of the band Viewfinder.
