Elsiane is the name of a duo, which pairs Elsieanne Caplette, composer and performer with Stephane Sotto, percussionist. The duo’s collaborative artistic approach is reflected in their name. Elsieanne Caplette, who grew up in Peru, originally studied classical music and began her musical career playing guitar and singing in various groups before immigrating to Montreal (Canada) in 1999. That’s when the singer met Stephane Sotto, born and raised in Montreal. In 2007, the duo released their first album, Hybrid. Produced by David Kakon (who has participated in projects including Jaffa, Café del Mar, Osunlade, and Cirque Du Soleil). The album has been successful in Canada and was released abroad in 2008. The name ‘hybrid’ matches the style of the duo as well as the musical influences of both artists.The fusion of jazz, classical, electronic, rock, characterizes the music of Elsiane, at once captivating through Elsieanne’s, deep, warm, and indescriptible voice. The duo is currently working on their anticipated second album. Elsiane’s fans across the globe have been waiting for four years. But as the singer says, the creative process doesn’t work under pressure. Not to worry, the duo has said that it won’t be long before we hear the penetrating voice of Elsieanne on the mesmerizing percussions of Stephan in new compositions. Stay tuned!
