Ingried Boussaroque is an exceptional singer whose warm voice spans three octaves. She is an accomplished composer and arranger, and plays a wide variety of instruments, such as the kantele (the Finnish harp), the piano and many types of flutes, just to name a few.
Ingried has traveled the world to study different vocal techniques, from Arabic to flamenco, from gipsy to classical. She uses all these influences and colours to create her unique way of singing.
Many grants and awards have underlined her work. Recently she received the Largs Trophy at the National Mòd 2016 and was awarded Gold for Puirt-a-beul at the Barra Mòd. In Canada, her group “La Mandragore” won the Opus Award as World Music Concert of the Year, and one of their albums was nominated as “Album of the Year” at the prestigious ADISQ Gala.
Now based in Scotland, Ingried travels a lot, touring with her various projects. She released her first solo album in Autumn 2016, thanks to Quebec Arts Council funding.
