Bonsound team is very proud to welcome artist Mélissa Laveaux to our label and booking rosters in Canada. Hailing from Haïti and currently living in Paris, Mélissa is a Montreal-born singer-songwriter who incorporates folk, blues, indie-pop and Creole influences into her music. Her soulful, vibrant vocals are the central thread of her art whose very essence is marked by her Haitian cultural heritage. Today, she releases her new album Radyo Siwèl digitally via Bonsound and unveils the music video for Angeli-ko. This is her third album and her first entirely composed of folkloric repertory and original songs in Creole.
This new album was created from rich tones and multiple musical influences. I always try to do something different on every album. I’ve always listened to hip-hop, I grew up with it. Rap, Brazilian music, trip-hop, and electronic music , she told Le Devoir.
Melissa Laveaux will perform in Montreal shortly. For all her tour dates, visit her artist page.
