NyaLi is the effervescent stage persona that Singaporean songbird Enya Lim assumes in performance. She mostly credits Disney animations for her childhood induction to music. With a classical piano background cultivated from the age of four, Enya gradually made the shift into singing: first in choirs, and eventually exploring various other configurations featuring vocals, from duos to bands to a cappella groups. She stumbled upon the jazz genre during her National University of Singapore (NUS) days, where she graduated with a B.A. Soc. Sc majoring in Political Science. Raised in the sweltering tropics where it is perennial deep summer, Enya nearly froze to death confronted by a forty degree temperature difference on initially moving to Boston, where she attended and attained her B Mus. from Berklee College of Music (2016), graduating magna cum laude with a major in Vocal Performance/ minor in Music Technology.
