Carine au Micro

Batuki Music Society and Alliance Francaise Toronto

 present Carine au Micro on Saturday March 23 at Alliance Francaise Theatre, 24 Spadina Road at 9 PM.

Carine is a soulful singer and songwriter, originally hailing from Bénin. Carine’s music has the power of gospel, the softness of jazz, the warmth of African music and the authenticity of hip-hop. In 2018 Carine au Micro released the album, ‘O La Si’, an album of five songs, whose themes centre on love and relationships.  Her interest in music started at a very young age, under the influence of her parents, especially her mother. On a trip to France in 1998, her passion for music took a decisive turn as she started collaborating with various musicians. When she arrived in Quebec in 2004 to pursue her university studies, Carine joined the Imani Gospel Singers, which allowed her to become familiar with the Montreal music scene. In 2013, Carine participated in  “La comédie musicale Mahalia Jackson” in the Segal Center in Montreal, starring Ranee Lee (Juno award-winning jazz musician). Her encounters with musicians like Lorraine Klassen, Noel Mpiaza and David Mobio helped cement her spot in the Montreal music scene.

Carine est une artiste d’origine Béninoise. Son intérêt pour la musique débute dès son jeune âge par le biais de ses parents et en particulier de sa mère. Son attachement pour la musique prend un tournant décisif en France où elle collabore avec plusieurs artistes émergents de la scène locale. À son arrivée au Québec, Carine collabore avec plusieurs artistes dont Ranee Lee ou encore Lorraine Klassen. Sa musique oscille entre la puissance du Gospel, la douceur du Jazz, l’ambiance chaleureuse Africaine et l’authenticité du Hip Hop. En 2018 Carine au Micro vient de sortir son nouvel album O La Si. Un EP de cinq chansons personnel et ensoleillé centré autour de thèmes amoureux, dont la traduction française signifie «Tu vas grandir». Un mantra à appliquer devant tous les événements douloureux qui l’ont façonnée.
