Mani Bahia (Mawn-Knee Bye-Eee-Yuh) is an American musician, writer, lyricist, singer-songwriter, and performer from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In late 2018 Mani dropped her first project, "Solstice," featuring a collection of original acoustic tracks recorded in nature with raw vocals and voice memos of the singer's reflective thoughts and feelings. Bahia performed a spoken word piece for Academy Award Winner Denzel Washington nestled under his arm outside of August Wilson's childhood home in Pittsburgh's Hill District in the same year. This opportunity ignited the multi-talented musician into a new perspective of her artistry as a writer and vocalist. So she began the journey into perfecting her penmanship and performance style. In 2020 "Mani Bahia and The Mob" had their debut performance at "Pittsburgh's Very Own," a top-rated concert series held at Mr. Smalls Theatre in Etna Township. The Mob's performance garnered the community's attention and fellow peers within the music community. Days later, The Mob uploaded a "Tiny Desk Concert Submission," and their performance featured on the "Best 2020 Tiny Desk Contest Entries We Saw This Week: Volume 6". Jon Lewis, an American writer based in New York, described the performance as "a house party" and recommended viewers have "space to two-step before you hit play." Most recently, Mani Bahia & the Mob performed at Picklesburgh 2021, Frest Fest 2021, and during the Downtown Art Crawl for the Cultural Trust Jan 2022. Mani Bahia's second project titled "Inferno" is set to release this year. "Inferno" is majority produced, arranged, and written by Mani Bahia and holds a few surprise production credits. Like Bilal Abbey's co-produced track titled "FRIZZ," and on "LINK," you can hear bass by Benji. of Spillage Village. Bahia's "Inferno" will give the listener a taste of varied genres such as Alt R&B, Hip-Hop, Rock, House, and Soul. The genre-bending "Inferno" is a full-bodied artistic work that expresses the grit, vulnerability, and devoted integrity Bahia has not only to her craft, but her journey to finding her footing in the world using music and songwriting as the anchor.
