Kaïssa has become an unmistakable representative of African music to the planet. Her voice simultaneously showcases warmth, appreciation, struggle and resilience. Kaïssa has no fear; her music is singular, unique and distinctive. With the poise and grace of Nancy Wilson, the feistiness of Nina Simone, the dignity of Miriam Makeba, Kaïssa delivers striking live performances.
