“When you see Cyrille Aimée perform, you instantly fall in love with her—her voice, eyes, curls and the joyful spirit she invests in each song.” —JazzTimes
Brimming with verve, Cyrille Aimée’s voice is a beautiful, warmly mischievous instrument. Her wandering musical spirit alights on blissful pop, Brazilian rhythms, Django jazz, and the classic cabaret of her native France. The Wall Street Journal calls her “astonishingly creative…one of the most promising jazz singers of her generation.” With artful and uplifting arrangements, Aimée’s band features nimble accompaniment from Michael Valeanu and Koran Agan guitar, Samuel Anning bass, Rajiv Jayaweera drums.
