Mondo Live Stream [Swiss Talent Live Showcase]
With her unmistakable voice and bittersweet songs somewhere between pop, soul and electro, Caroline Alves makes music which goes right under your skin.
Caroline Alves, winner of the Swiss Music Award 2021 "Best Talent", does not shy away from heavy topics on this journey: Self-doubt, escape, excess, failed relationships and fear of loss are recurring chapters in her songs. The Brazilian-born singer deals with a lot of autobiographical material and therefore manages to cast a spell over her listeners with ease. Caroline Alves names Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse and Massive Attack as her idols. Vocally, one discovers similarities here and there, but the music of Caroline Alves goes further: her musical DNA is diverse and each of her songs finely tuned. Now and then still spiced with a little jazz, so that she can play her big trump card, her unique voice, at any time.
