Event Description

A Montreal-based soul singer-songwriter with origins in Haiti, Juno award-winner and Polaris Music Prize finalist Dominique Fils-Aimé puts the history of African-American musical culture into the heart of her work. Her latest release, Our Roots Run Deep, came out September 2023 on Ensoul Records. A listen to her previous albums, Nameless (2018), Stay Tuned! (2019), and Three Little Words (2021) makes it clear that Fils-Aimé has both the powerful vocals and the imagination to meet her musical ambitions. Our Roots Run Deep is no exception, providing a vibrant, lush addition to her repertoire in which her voice transcends in a multitude of emotional and stylistic directions.

This rising star has been on the same bill with artists such as Allison Russell, Melody Gardot, Diana Krall, Ibrahim Maalouf, and more. With a magnetic stage presence inspired by Nina Simone and Martin Luther King Jr., Fils-Aimé moves from vintage jazz to trip-hop to sultry soul jams, even touching on reggae and R&B with confident style. She last appeared in Victoria at TD Victoria International JazzFest 2019 in an unforgettable debut, and now returns to captivate audiences once more at Wicket Hall!

Opening for this evening will be Victoria-based award-winning singer-songwriter Morien Jones, who performs a catchy blend of classic soul and folk, with elements of jazz and reggae.
