Born in Dakar from Cameroonian parents, Mylène Otou arrives in Quebec at the age of 6. Two years later, she starts singing in her school’s choral. Inspired by artists like Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Magic System, and Brenda Fassie, Mylène’s music is a clever mix between African pop, soul, and RNB. In 2015, she released « Gratitude », her second album. The song « Merveilles/Winder » was afterwards selected to be the official hymn of Montreal’s Youth International Day. In only a decade, Mylène Otou managed to share the stage with several Montreal’s artists on top of being a chorist for multiple African artists, such as Muna Mingole, and Petit Pays.
