Call in to speak with the host
Multi-talented artist Miriam Chemmoss hails from East-Africa. She spent her formative years between Tanzania and Kenya where she was steeped in a potent brew of her family’s diverse African, European and Middle-Eastern cultural heritage.
As a teen, Miriam was involved in theater and music programs in every school she attended – close to 10 schools – as a result of frequent relocation due to her father’s military career. It is this unusual background and diversity that would give her the discipline and confidence to enter both solo and choral competitions during national drama and music festivals in Kenya.
In 1998 Miriam was awarded a full scholarship by Waldorf College, a liberal arts school in Forest City, Iowa. She studied Theater/Music and Media Studies (Print, Electronic and Digital), which prepared her well for the performance arts scene in Washington, DC, where she would later move in 2001 upon graduation.
By late 2002 Miriam had taken part in several regional theatrical shows in Washington, DC, hosted her own radio show – “Retrospect” at Voice of America Broadcasting Services – and would later be featured in the CBS hit Television series “The District” in 2003. She was also featured in several independent films such as “Refuge”, “Mirrors” and “To Sleep With Anger”.
When Miriam is not performing on stage, in films or recording music, she’s writing a motivational book series and advocating holistic wellness, environmental responsibility and peaceful co-existence via her websites, videos and blogs.
Miriam’s unique self-expression, multiple talents, as well as her rich cultural background are a much needed breath of fresh air in the evolving African/Diaspora film and music industry.
