Meriem Ben Amor is a Tunisian-Canadian singer: a unique voice with a "warm and ethereal" tone that blends the richness of Eastern ornaments with the softness and clarity of Western music. Meriem is a pluridisciplinary musician: she sings, plays string instruments, and percussion. She is a polyglot artist who speaks and sings in Arabic, French, Spanish, and English. Her exposure to many cultural influences allowed her to sing in other languages like Romani, Ladino, Azeri, Farsi, and Romanian.

At a very young age, Meriem grew up joining her father's soulful Sufi chanting. She learned the violin when she was 12, classical guitar when she was 17, and spent the past decade studying and playing the piano. In Tunisia, Meriem studied the Arabic Maqam and the Tunisian Malouf while finishing her bachelor's degree in electronic engineering.

After moving to Canada, she deepened her knowledge in classical music theory and took several composition masterclasses and advanced workshops, as well as electronic music production courses at Berklee College of Music.

She performs with "The Roma Jazz Ensemble," a World Music ensemble based in Vancouver, led by the violin virtuoso Lache Cercel.

In 2019, Meriem met with the two-time Grammy nominee DJ/Producer/Sound Designer, founder of the label Electrofone and member of NARAS, Carmen Rizzo, who produced her debut album "Once Upon a Time". The collaboration continued through releasing two more singles and a Remix EP in 2020 and led to founding the band "Didon" at the end of 2021.

Meriem continues collaborating with artists of various musical backgrounds and seeking new experiences.
