"Dominique Fils-Aimé’s voice is straightforward, unaffected and so we are saved from having to speculate on the number of influences to be unravelled as we listen to a singer taking on a noble genre: soul. By noble, I mean musical genres with the potential to outlive the nostalgia that they arouse, i.e. serious music requiring references, initiation, transmission of knowledge as well as the audacity to claim the creation of a contemporary work from the fertile ground of yesteryear". These are the words of André Manoukian, describing the songwriter and singer Dominique Fils-Aimé.
Little is known of Dominique Fils-Aimé, and it is the vocation of "Jazz à Juan" to have spectators discover artists of her calibre. Inspired by the jazz-soul icons of the 1940s through to the 1960s, such as Billie Holiday, Etta James and Nina Simone, this artist from Montreal, with Haitian origins, offers with her suave voice an exalting cocktail of Afro-American music enriched by radiant groove, enhancing her call to revolution with arrangements rich in vocal harmonies and unrestrained music which marks her timeless productions. Latest album: Stay Tuned!, Felix "Jazz Album of the year" at the ADISQ gala 2019.
