FRENCHIE ALGERIAN POP SOUL SINGER, MISS MAYRINA CHEBEL!








Just discovered pop/soul Frenchie Algerian singer and as usual had to share this discovery with you all.

So she's just 26 years old, she comes from the Lyons , fell in love with music through Lauryn Hill.

When she moved to Paris , she was decided to make her dream come through, just like Awa Imani she worked with the gospel choir "We are one" , attended events, met her producer, met Disiz la Peste (Senegalo-French hip hop artist), met the legendary IAM rappers;Akhenaton and Shurik'n. They liked her vibe, decided to write her a song , ended up writing and working with her on an entire album called "Ailleurs". Despite her talent it's been difficult for her to break through the french radio market that finds soul too adult of a musical style for their audience..but she keeps pushing through. I like her...would def' listen to her on a sunday morning while relaxing:)


If I knew her personally I would tell her not to worry abt people comparing her to Amel Bent, they both do a popish/soulful style of music so of course they might remind people of each other, so push on through sista..let the haters hate and do u:)

Here's a live performance clip: HERE
