Accomplished dancer, versatile vocalist, songwriter, and captivating performer Emeline Michel is the reigning Queen of Haitian Song.
“The dancing ambassador with a voice serene and warm like the breeze” —The New York Times.

Emeline Michel is internationally acclaimed for her sophisticated yet uniquely Haitian sound— a fusion of pop, jazz, blues, American R&B, with Pan-Caribbean rhythms such as bossa nova, reggae, and samba, plus elements of traditional Haitian compas, twoubadou, rara, and rasin music.

This transnational diva is often compared to Joni Mitchell and Tracy Chapman because of her soulfully silky voice and stirring lyrics, which frequently address social issues.
