The French-Dominican vocalist Cyrille Aimée returns to GPAC this season, gracing the main stage after showstopping performances in GPAC's Jazz in the Box series. Aimée's introduction to jazz was the result of the fortuitous location of her upbringing, the village Samois-sur-Seine, the same place where legendary gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt had lived. There is no doubt her exposure to gypsy music inspired her sound and her soul. Her program features original music as well as covers of classics. Her band, comprised of bass, drums, and three guitars (Brazilian, gypsy, and jazz), expresses her unique musical vision and hybrid of influences, resulting in a sound that's at once both fresh and enlivening, to say nothing of her singular voice, which is destined to enthrall audiences for decades to come.
