Internationally renowned for her unparalleled abilities, Cyrille's vocal stylings are synonymous with musical genius.

At the young age of 26, she has already released four CDs internationally, including "Cyrille Aimée & The Surreal Band" and "Smile" with Brazilian guitarist Diego Figueiredo. The Japanese label Venus Records has just released Cyrille and Diego’s latest duo album “Just the Two of us” this past November.
