A Con Edison Music Masters Event
She has been called “the Joni Mitchell of Haiti” and the “new goddess of Creole music.” Indeed, singer-songwriter Emeline Michel has been instrumental in putting Haitian music on the world music map, touring the globe both as a performer and in her role as a Red Cross Ambassador. With “a voice serene and warm like the breeze” (The New York Times), she performs both in French and Haitian Creole, frequently addressing social issues with a deep caring and warmth for her native land.
Note: Please join us at 7pm in the Mezzanine Lounge for a pre-show discussion and Q&A with Emeline Michel.
This event is part of The New York State Presenter-Artist Partnership Project made possible through a regrant from the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
