Don't Be So Shy by French singer Imany was originally released on the soundtrack to the 2014 film French Women. Now remixed by Russian DJs Filatov & Karas, the re-worked dance track has climbed the charts all over Europe, reaching #1 on Shazam in France and #12 on the worldwide Shazam chart!
Born Nadia Mladjao in the Comoros Islands, off the southeast coast of Africa, Imany grew up in France, and was signed by the Ford Models Europe Agency. After several years of traveling around the world, she returned to France to pursue her lifelong ambition of becoming a singer. Inspired by the likes of Billie Holiday,Nina Simone, and Tracy Chapman, she began performing a blend of acoustic folk and soulful blues under the guise of Imany (Swahili for "hope") in various Parisian nightclubs and jazz bars, before releasing her debut EP, Acoustic Sessions in 2010.
Now Imany's music is being discovered by a brand new audience with this Filatov & Karas remix taking the world by storm.
