French jazz-cabaret singer
Crisp and delicate voice, playful style, dizzying mix of jazz, soul and ethnic music from France to Brazil – at the concert of this talented singer Cyrille Aimee you will hear them all.
Born in Fontainebleau, France and raised in the village of Samois-sur-Seine where a famous french gypsy jazz musician Django Reinhardt lived, Aimee had a chance to learn and experience jazz music from her school days. Aimee writes in her bio that with easy proximity to the place of the annual Django Reinhardt Festival held at Samois-sur-Seine attracting gypsy musicians from around the world, she was sneaking out from her bedroom to hear the musicians at the encampment. Her rebellious character can be heard in her singing and in her selection of the songs to perform.
In 2012 Aimee had won Sarah Vaughan Jazz Vocal Competition which invigorated her international career. Her singing can be described as mixing Sarah Vaughan in name and Michael Jackson in electronics. At her concerts she introduces the loop machine to the audience and delivers brilliant performance with it. “She is a one-woman rhythm machine” in the words of New York Times music critic S. Holden. The AllAboutJazz calls her “the face of post-modernity”.
The informal setting at Le Poisson Rouge will make it a delightful musical experience with this amazing jazz singer!
