Marlene Dorcena (from Haiti)

With a not very common insouciance and agility, Marlene develops a heat and a sensuality of good tone. She dedicates her velvet voice to hawk the Haitian traditional repertory made by ballades with the guitar raised of persussions which encourage swaying walk.
She sings the complaint of the slaves, the cries of revolution but also the songs of love and other bursts of laughter with original compositions, at the African rhythms and jazzy sonorities.
Accompanied by very good musicians and a production as discrete as successful, she is a breath of fresh air between Africa of the voodoo and gospel.
