Discover Music: Emeline Michel

Jan 29, 2020

Vocalist, songwriter and Red Cross Ambassador Emeline Michel is internationally acclaimed for fusing pop, jazz, blues and traditional Haitian rhythms to create deeply moving and joyful music.

Hailed by The New York Times as a “diplomat of music” and “the dancing ambassador with a voice serene and warm like the breeze,” Michel first began singing with the gospel choir in the church of Gonaïves, Haiti. She later studied at the Detroit Jazz Center and returned to Haiti, where her career blossomed. Now based in New York City, she runs her own production company, Production Cheval de Feu, and is currently touring in support of her long-awaited 10th album Quintessence.
