A Problem Like Maria (often abbreviated as APLM) is a singer-songwriter and MC gifted with a voice meant for slow jams dipped in honey. APLM is a chameleon hailing from the tropical country, Philippines. She is known to delve into different genres. She can be a hip-hop vixen a minute then transform into a foul-mouthed rapper with quick, sharp tongue the next. And if you are too slow, you will miss her as a sultry songstress with folkie leanings.
