For more than 10 years, she was a social worker for young people and marginalized families around the world. Her career strongly feeds her art of social justice. If she goes from blues vocals to electric slam in her songs, she can also cross from the theater stage to the television screen, to transform into an actress, host or speaker. Writer in 2 collective works published 11 essais sur le racisme et Travail invisible.
Her music exists to help us free ourselves. She sings with all her might, with a stunning voice, she will touch you right in the heart.
Her 1st EP Mon Monde, lets us discover 5 original songs: Natural, My Words, Let your tears flow, Fear kills and Fanm (with Veeby Afrosoul and Koudy Fagbemi).
She is an analyst and observer of the manifestation of the various social issues (racism, mixed identities, alternative justice, drug addiction and dependencies, deportation, regaining power, mental health, the power of healing) that confront our contemporary society.
