Cyrille Aimee at Folly Theater


Folly Theater

Kansas City, MO


Sat, February 17, 2018
8:00 pm


$20 - 55


Vocalist Cyrille Aimee was primarily raised in Samois-sur-Seine, France, the same place where legendary gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt had lived, which contributed to her great love of gypsy musical influences. In her words, “I was hypnotized by gypsy music, which made me want to tap my feet; music that swings makes me so happy.” Aimee’s hybrid of influences has resulted in a sound that is at once both fresh and enlivening, which is to say nothing of her singular voice, destined to enthrall audiences for decades to come.
