Biography

Cyrille Aimée’s unique blend of French gypsy jazz and Dominican rhythm and spice combine to create an unmistakably smooth and driving vocal style. Growing up with the French Gypsies in Samois sur Seine brought her into the musical mentality that produced such legends as Django Reinhardt. In 2010 she was a finalist in the Thelonious Monk International Vocal Competition.

While being trained at the conservatory of SUNY Purchase, Cyrille Aimée competed in the famous Montreux Jazz Festival Vocal Competition, where she was awarded first prize as well as the public prize. It was there she first met Brazilian guitarist Diego Figueiredo, who was also a finalist in the Montreux Guitar Competition. Apart from the Montreux Competition, thirty-one year old Diego Figueiredo has won many other important competitions including the VISA Prize. He is considered to be one of the most talented guitarists in the world. Diego has a lot of albums and books on the market and is now presenting his new concert “From Classical, to Jazz” which is a fusion between jazz, bossa and classical music.

Cyrille currently resides in Brooklyn, and continues to make her reputation grow as one of the most talented and unique vocalists on the scene today performing in NYC clubs like Dizzy’s and Smalls with musicians such as Roy Hargrove and Anat Cohen amongst many others.
