by Yann Messina 227 views

French-Caribbean artist Mariline Maro, who represented France on the occasion of the Eurovision Song Contest held in Birmingham in 1998, is back with a brand new album titled You know. A long awaited album which perfectly reflects her artistic sensibility, mixing afro, soul and pop influences, i.e., her own definition of world music. A first extract is available, also entitled You know.

Since her Eurovision experience, Mariline Maro has mainly continued her career as a backing vocalist and dancer for many French and African artists including the great Salif Keita. She has also accomplished a remarkable work as a composer for several short movies, and is known for having performed for the soundtracks of some major French movies such as Les Caprices d’un fleuve, Cuisine américaine and Agathe Cléry.

After having appeared at the World Music Expo WOMEX 2012 in Thessaloniki, Greece and a successful show case at Le China music hall in Paris, Mariline took the roads to show off her talent in Denmark and Sweden. If you missed her performances in Scandinavia, no worries, she will probably come back sooner or later.
