We just had the pleasure of meeting singer Massiel Yanira. We helped her choose some lovely pieces for her wardrobe. She was excited to add some of our local designers to her closet, like Birds of North America and atelier b. She is a delight!
Born of a Latin American mother and a father from Quebec, Massiel Yanira discovered from an early age, all the beauty and generosity of spanish-speaking cultures. Open to the world, she shared her life among El Salvador, Haiti and Quebec. In 2003, she completed her bachelor’s degree in classical singing at McGill University. After exploring different avenues, she started writing her own compositions with bass player and composer Mathieu Gagné. Inspired and delighted by this creative and artistic journey, Massiel Yanira then worked on her debut album with producer and composer Alex Cattaneo. “Una Voz” was launched spring 2011. In addition, Massiel Yanira is the lead singer of the Roberto Lopez Project 2011 Juno Awards nominee in the category of best WORLD MUSIC ALBUM OF THE YEAR.
