Andrina Turenne is a Métis/Franco-Manitoban artist from St-Boniface, Manitoba. Her love of music first sparked around campfires, where she learned to sing and harmonise with relatives and friends as a young child. A singer, songwriter and musician, she has worked in the music industry for over 20 years. She has contributed to nearly 50 albums, has performed on stages across five continents and has been featured on TV and radio in Canada and internationally. Formerly of JUNO award-winning group Chic Gamine, Andrina Turenne has been gaining momentum as a solo artist since 2016. Her music has also made its way to the world of theatre : She presented a number of compositions in Gabriel Dumont’s Wild West Show and toured with acclaimed playwright and concert pianist Tomson Highway. The singer was invited to participate in the installation ceremony for the governor general of Canada in July of 2021, in Ottawa. Her performance of “En plein coeur mai”, a co-written song about the Métis resistance at Batoche, was broadcast live across the country. In early 2022, with support from the Canada Council for the Arts, she undertook a four month creative residency in Louisiana to write new music as well as to collaborate with local artists. In Fall 2022, she will release her first solo album of original, bilingual compositions, as well as a francophone EP.
