A “dancing ambassador with a voice serene and warm like a breeze” (The New York Times), Haitian vocalist Emeline Michel mixes Creole and French folk songs with vibrant jazz. Emeline Michel is beloved by Haitians for combining traditional rhythms with social, political and inspirational content, and using a broad palette of musical styles, including the native Haitian compass, twoubadou, and rare. The music reflects her strong attachment to her native culture, even after years of living in France, Canada, and now New York.
