Packed with pop references and echoes of islands across the Atlantic, the young singer’s style is extremely international. Winner of the 2015 RFI (Radio France Internationale) Discoveries Prize, the 24-year-old Elida Almeida learned the art of fusion as she toured the globe from Côte d’Ivoire to Haiti, Paris and Cuba.
