A Montreal-based soul-jazz singer-songwriter with origins in Haiti, Dominique Fils-Aimé recently completed the first two CDs of a trilogy exploring African-American history through its musical culture – from 19th century slave songs to the hip-hop of 2019. A listen to her albums, Nameless and Stay Tuned! makes it clear that Fils-Aimé has both the powerful vocals and the imagination to meet her musical ambitions. A charismatic live performer inspired by Nina Simone and Martin Luther King, Fils-Aimé moves from vintage jazz to trip-hop to sultry soul jams, even touching on reggae and R&B with confident style. Another not-to-be-missed JazzFest debut! Danny Trudeau bass, Nathan Vanheuverzwijn keyboards, Étienne Miousse guitar, Salin, Cheewapansri drums
“A cross between moods of soul and trip hop. [Her music] is carefully constructed, with effectiveness and simplicity, reconfirming the excellent tastes of this splendid singer.” – La Presse
