Background

"EriAm" stands for Eritrean-American; the EriAm Sisters trio wanted a name that would highlight the uniqueness of their cultural makeup and international aspect of their journey. The EriAm Sisters come from a musically and culturally diverse family. Their parents were born in an East African country named Eritrea. As for the group, Lianda and Salina were born in Amsterdam while younger sister Haben was born in Seattle. This history is not possible Since age two, the sisters have been belting out songs in more than one language. It wasn't until Haben was seven that their musical gifts were noticed at their school. Haben's music teacher told the parents that Haben is an exceptionally brilliant singer, actor, and performs with grace and ease of a seasoned professional. Similar comments were flowing for Salina and Lianda. [1]
