Artist bio

Nilton De Menezes, who performs under the name NDMA, is an established Ottawa singer/rapper/producer who specializes in dance/hip-hop music. NDMA is always working toward creating a beat that unconsciously moves hips and has been successful in doing so by collaborating with artists across genres. He has become well-known for his uncanny ability to bring together music lovers of all types under one roof.

Having been born in Angola and then raised in Brazil, NDMA recognized the important relationship between music and community from an early age. When his family moved to North America and he began to form his own musical identity, the Portuguese rhythms of his childhood and the idea that music can bring a community together became his foundation.
