Cyrille Aimée

Hotel Schützen, Rheinfelden
Monday, 27 May

For Cyrille Aimée, music is both a way of life and an art form, giving her the freedom to follow her creative talents wherever her diverse heritage takes her. She has developed a remarkable, multi-award-winning career that spans continents as a singer, songwriter, lyricist, and educator, while always staying true to her roots. By the time Aimée was 20 years old, she had already lived on four different continents. A stay in Santo Domingo was followed by a move to New York City. She attended university by day and performed as a singer in Manhattan jazz clubs by night. Her talent quickly earned her a reputation as a fearless, warm-hearted, witty improviser and a peerless performer and won numerous competitions. Two highly acclaimed albums caught the attention of one of the country's leading songwriters—Steven Sondheim, who invited her to perform alongside the legendary Bernadette Peters at New York City Center in November 2013, accompanied by Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.
Starting in 2020, she ventured into the digital realm with a series of YouTube video collaborations with pianist and jazz influencer Emmet Cohen, and her version of "La Vie en Rose" has been viewed more than 6 million times to date. A growing interest in sharing her vision of the interplay between spontaneity and creativity and the importance of community led her to further develop her ideas in a TEDx Talk on the laws of improvisation and their application in life. A visit to New Orleans made her fall in love with the city and move there in 2017. New Orleans' unique blend of Latin, French, and African American jazz heritage allowed her to fully explore all facets of her own musical identity. Bringing her New York life full circle, she teamed up with producer and multi-instrumentalist Jake Sherman and to create her latest album, “A Fleur de Peau.” With the depth and sophistication of jazz, the directness of pop, and the irresistible dance rhythms of the Caribbean, it is at once more intimate and accessible than anything Aimée has done before.
