Nisha BNisha Bissambhar (Nisha B)
"The Princess of Chutney Soca"

Definitely the most versatile female artiste you would see in the chutney/bollywood world. Why? Because she is capable of singing any song that challenge her career. Nisha’s life and being celebrates the essence of music. Having grown up with the ever presence of rhythm, and strong Indian cultural background, this talented singer devoted herself to the music industry at a very tender age.

After completing her secondary studies, and having gained distinctions in English language and literature, Nisha’s career officially began. She envisioned a life of being kept close to her music, and so she indulged in numerous cultural activities and programs.

Nisha claims this venture paved the road for her career and gave her the inspiration to move onwards. In the year 1999, she released The Scorpion, a song that was voted one of the most popular songs of all time. Some time after, together with the empowerment of her two brothers, Anil B and Ravi B, Karma was formed. Nisha says her love for music is cemented with Karma and her strength lies in her passion.
