The best of world music

Sylphir

Biography :

The voice of Sylphir wanders nonchalantly between jazz and soul tones. At first, she met the Cameroonian Manu Atna Njock who introduced her to African music and invited her to be a member of Zékhul. She then discovered Haitian music by accompanying Sara Rénélik during her various tours. Buoyed by many stage experiences, the young woman begins to work on  more personal projects. Through her musical peregrinations, she likes to dig the many treasures of the Quebecian culture embedded in her own roots while creating links with the musics she loves. She gradually developed her own style of pop songs soaked in soul and African influences. Sylphir’s approach is oriented towards the world, giving rise to a new Quebecian music  imprinted of her ancestral roots. Her shows are an amalgam of Malian traditional music and urban music with a Quebecian essence. Equally comfortable in French than in English or Creole, the young woman diffuses through her compositions a universal message for all generations.
