Leena Salim

Born to the sounds of Singapore, Leena Salim’s childhood home was filled with songs from the transistor radio. A woman with a mission, her rise to has been one filled with the challenges of overcoming the confines of her cultural origins and making her voice heard in a modern world. Leena was determined to break the stigma surrounding female and ethnic constraints. Now based in Brisbane, Leena’s voice has evolved into a mature, soulful, elegant resonance of a modern day jazz vocalist, harking back to the likes of Shirley Bassey, Barbara Streisand, Ella Fitzgerald and Etta James.
