Description

Born March 11th 1993, Fathimath Mishya Athif (Mishy Athif) began singing at the age of 3, participating in the Maldivian Inter-School Singing Competitions which were broadcast live on national television during her school years. Encouraged by her dad (former musician, Ahmed Athif), she taught herself the guitar at age 10, which in turn aided her during performances and also helped her compose as she began writing original songs (both in English and her first language) soon after.

Musical Performance (2006-Present)

Mishy Athif, began appearing in small acoustic concerts in 2006, alongside local bands. She first performed solo for the Maldivian public at the Annual National Bodyboarding Contest, Varunulaa Challenge in 2006 and was the youngest amongst only a handful of girls who played the guitar in Maldives at the time.

She grew popular amongst musicians in Maldives and made her official debut into the Maldivian music scene with the major hit, “Fari Paree”(2008). The song was recorded at a live concert with popular music band “Fasylive” and went on to top recognised television and radio charts as a result of gaining popularity on youtube.com. She then went on to appear on countless radio and television shows and her following on social media flourished as she commenced to post cover videos online, which were recorded during resort performances.

In 2010, while attending a dinner for “Boney M” member Marcia Barrett, Mishy rose to the occasion and welcomed the band to the Maldives by singing them an impromptu unplugged version of Whitney Houston’s “Saving All My Love”. This lead her to be invited by Marcia Barrett to perform at her concert which was held in Male’ the next day.

Furthermore, she had a hit with a song called “Hiy kudhi kudhi”, for which she wrote the melody and helped produce the music. It was performed live as a guest performance at the grand finale of “The Voice of Maldives” in 2011, becoming an instant hit on youtube.com and validating her creative choice with over 200,000 hits.

Mishy Athif has also performed for 4 of the Maldivian presidents’ over various occasions, the latest of which was at the Maldivian President’s banquet 2015, where the president of Sri Lanka was also in attendance.

Her most recent notable performance in the Maldives was opening for South Asian sensation “Atif Aslam” at the Visit Maldives Festival Kickoff 2016 on new year’s eve.

In mid 2016, Mishy Athif moved to Perth, Western Australia to pursue a higher education at Curtin University. She has since made multiple special appearances at selected shows around Perth, some of which include BR Dalton’s Blood and Gold album launch and a series of sold out Eric Clapton Tribute Shows that were performed over a few months at some of Perth’s most iconic music venues such as The Rosemount Hotel, The Charles Hotel and The Ellington Jazz Club.
