Biography :

K-Iri is a duet of two singers, two voices harmonising around their two favourite instruments, an acoustic guitar and a violin. The pair, made of two young women, Sarah-Judith from Burkina Faso and Iri from Ethiopia, met in Montreal in 2015. Sharing the same dreams, they create a music about their origins and their formation. Indeed, Sarah-Judith comes from the world of classical music and Iri from an autodidact formation. Their creations mix the rhythms of ethio-jazz and contemporary soul while keeping a bit of sobriety to obtain refined but strong compositions. They won the 2016 Syli d’argent de la musique du monde.
