Aimée was raised primarily in France by her French father and Dominican mother. As a curious child in Samois-sur-Seine, she would sneak out of her bedroom window to wander into the nearby gypsy encampments filled with those attending the annual Django Reinhardt Festival. She quickly fell in love with gypsy music and way of life; years later she would sing on street corners with friends, busking across the Continent. While in the midst of one such odyssey, she found herself at the Montreux Jazz Festival, where she won first prize. She is a winner of the Montreux Jazz Festival’s International Vocal Competition, the Sarah Vaughan International Vocal Competition and the 2015 DownBeat Critic’s Poll ("Rising Star—Female Vocalist").
