Yanick Etienne at Casa Campestre, Ft. Lauderdale, Fl.

Photos by Manny Ardouin.

Yanick Etienne is no stranger to the Haitian music scene. The vocalist started her carreer, in 1979.

Her singing style combines jazz, soul and Caribbean flavors to make a completely unique sound: her own.

Yanick was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti and came to the U.S. with her family in 1970

She's from a very artistic family. Two of her brothers are musicians (Weston & Félix) and, her younger sister is a dancer. Her husband is the known Arranger Dernst Emile. D'Mile, the older son is an accomplished arranger who travels the United States extensively.

She toured in 1988/89 World Tour. She also joined the Roxy Music world tour of 2001 in New York and remained with the group until the end of the North American leg. Yanick also appeared at some European performances and can be ssen at the final show on the Live At The Apollo DVD.

We were fortunate to have her in South Florida. You'll see why. Let the pictures do the talking. ENJOY.
