The Me N Ma Girls (formerly known as The Tiger Girls) is the first all-girl pop hip hop dance ensemble from Myanmar discovered by Australian dancer Nicole “Nikki” May and Burmese entrepreneur U Moe Kyaw in 2010. The group currently consists of four Burmese women: Ah Moon, Cha Cha, Htike Htike (pronounced as “Tie Tie”), and Kimi. The girls released their first cover album in 2010, “Year of the Tiger Girls.” In 2011, the group split from Kyaw and was renamed as the “Me N Ma Girls.”

As The Me N Ma Girls grew in popularity, their views regarding censorship and other social issues took center stage. The Group entered the international stage and gained notoriety when they debuted their country’s first overtly political song Come Back Home, in May 2012 during a visit from then United States Ambassador-at-Large for Global Women’s Issues Melanne Verveer in the Office on Global Women’s Issues. Shortly after their appearance, their story was made into a documentary, Miss Nikki and the Tiger Girls, and was directed by the award winning director, Juliet Lamont. The group signed with the independent American music label, Power Music of Los Angeles, California — the first for any pop and hip hop band from Myanmar. –
