Florence K

Explore the freshest hits that make Quebec dance and sing with Florence K on C’EST FORMIDABLE! You'll hear beautiful songs from Franco-Canadian communities, classics from the past and brand-new music from francophone countries all over the world.

Since the release of her debut album 2005, Florence K has continually earned accolades for her wide-ranging musical approach. Free-spirited, open-minded, Florence sings in Spanish, English, Portuguese and French with ease, and to date has released five albums to acclaim, including her latest, Estrellas. On Estrellas, Florence offers a more contemporary sound than her fans have been used to, with rhythms inspired by the music of Cuba. Surrounded by Cuban collaborators, she instills her signature authenticity and integrity into this project. Estrellas is also the inaugural album of Florence K’s own eponymous label.

From 2011 to 2018, Florence also hosted the radio show ICI FLORENCE on Ici musique, introducing songs from all over the world and also performing. In those seven years, she took her listeners on a weekly trip to the lands of salsa, jazz, bossa nova, blues, flamenco, fado and bachata, just to name a few. In 2017, Florence joined the panel of judges alongside Marc Hervieux as part of the third season of Gregory Charles's musical competition series Virtuose.

A relentless advocate of demystifying mental illness, Florence has acted as spokeswoman of Au Contraire, a film festival on mental illness. She was honoured by CAMH (Center for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto) among 150 change leaders in the field of mental health, and served as the ambassador of Bell's Let's Talk campaign in January 2018.
