Kanen comes from the Innu community of Uashat mak Mani-Utenam on the North Shore of Quebec. She is a member of the Nikamu Mamuitun collective with whom she has been touring the stages of Quebec, then released her first mini-EP in September 2019. The artist unveils her sensitive, introspective and sweet indie-folk universe. On stage, accompanied by her two ukuleles, she delivers a show that takes its time, that balances between moving songs and funny offbeat interventions. A favorite of the public and jury, she won a dozen prizes in the semi-finals of the 24th edition of the Francouvertes. Kanen is currently working on her first album and this year she can be heard on the new song Sailors, a magnificent collaboration with the artist Matiu.
