Imany in Swahili, means hope, faith … And that’s Imany’s driving force. She moves forward in life, surfing on her dreams! Raised to the sounds of the voices of Tracy Chapman, Marvin Gaye, Tina Turner and Billie Holiday, she conquered France and Europe with her first album You Will Never know and through energy filled performances.Born in the south of France, raised in Paris, having spent a few years in New York, where she evolved in the fashion workd, Imany chose bare it all, and is accompanied only by a guitare as if she wanted to emancipate herself from music genres, and not be distracted by the artificial and decorative. Now she’s back for a series of show with her duo, as if taken back to the beginning, certainly the sign of a new album in the works.
