An accidental meeting with critically acclaimed music songwriter/producer, Tim "ennovator" Rimbui, led to the recording and release her of first single Happy, in 2004, she went on to launch her debut album, Hatimaye meaning ‘finally’ in 2008. She is currently working on her second solo album, to be released later in 2011. A mix of neo-soul and afro-fusion, Atemi’s sound has been described as that of “Miriam Makeba meeting Jill Scott.”
