The young Caledonian singer boasts an extensive range of timbres and tones, and fascinates her audience with her warm and natural personality. She embodies the modern image and diversity of New Caledonian music through her repertoire built on both modern and more traditional takes on the "chanson française". 2000, she represented New Caledonia at the World Music Festival.

She has since toured the Pacific islands extensively, including Vanuatu, Fiji and Australia. This is her second time in New Zealand for this series of workshops and concerts organised by several Alliances Françaises of New Zealand.
