Biography

Raphaëlle Eva grew up in Guadeloupe until the age of seven. She’s been living in France after that, and the nostalgia of her caribbean childhood shows in her songs. Her father is from Martinica, an other island in the West Indies, her mother is half swiss and french and she’s also got a tzech grand mother. This must be what gave her that special taste for escape. Wishing to live a more natural lifestyle, Raphaëlle recently settled in French Guyana.

She expresses her mixed origins through her music: She likes to mix french words and tropical rythms, reggae, pop and world music, following a similar path as other french singers like Serge Gainsbourg, Laurent Voulzy, Bernard Lavilliers or Henry Salvador.
As a songwriter, she is particularly fond of acoustic sounds. Her words are an invitation to travelling and are inhabited with her love for Nature and human feelings. Her commitment is more of an affective one than a political one but she strives to defend the right to be different.
The first album called “Original” was produced by Vincent Bruley, who also worked with artists such as: Liz Mc Comb, Richard Bona, The Nubians or Lokua Kanza.
The second album ‘’Cest meilleur quand cest chaud’’ (‘’Its better hot’‘) is a “nomad” one, as it has been recorded in many places (French Guyana, Martinica and Paris) whith many different musicians of various origins. There are several guest singers, as Kali and his son Nazareken from Martinica, William Baldé from Senegal and Guinea (on a song about the Island of Gorée, sang in both french and wolof), and Symon De Almeda, from Brasil.
