In exile, the call of Haiti’s cultural heritage had sounded to Mélissa like a veiled voice coming from an out-of-range radio. Once there, she tuned in the receiver, filled in the blanks to honour struggles past and then re-imagined them, to open up a future of new possibilities. It’s a fairy-tale still looking for a happy ending. But Radyo Siwèl is where a proud but often tragic past meets the promise of a better future.
Kyris is a singer-songwriter based in Toronto. He draws his inspiration from his experiences along the roads where he developed his guitar playing, sharpened his pen and mastered the secret to engage people.
His world lies across a backpack folk and a chameleon pop, vibrant and colorful with gathering lyrics.
Noticed at “Les Rencontres Qui Chantent” program in Petite-Vallée (Quebec) in 2016 and APCM's (Association of Music Professionals) “Rond Point” program in 2017, aimed at emerging francophone artists, Kyris reveals us the facets of a unique universe, where music rhymes with “Nous” (“Us” in English), the title of his first EP released in June 2018.
His first single “Le Coeur Du Monde” (The World’s Heart) is a true anthem to the living together, tinged with contagious optimism that has already won many hearts on the planet.
