  1. Hi Barbara,

    I’m Ima, a professional singer/actress living in the UK for 9 years. I’ve been wanting to form a band but with a twist as I want an all female. My problem is all my musician pianist friends are male. I do concerts all around the UK and abroad with other west end performers.
    (www.imacastro.com) please check it out and visit the links as well.
    I would like to know if you are interested as I am eager to start this lifelong dream. I have a female sax player and a cellist/bass player friend who said yes to my idea already. What’s good is we can still do our own thing and have this band on the side or the other way around. We will all be front liners it’s just that I will hold the microphone most of the time. Hope to hear from you. 🙂 Ima
