Kelly Bado is a bilingual singer-songwriter who grew up in the Ivory Coast and moved to Canada in 2007. Inspired by love, hope, and social justice, and drawing on her African/French upbringing, her sound is a seductive blend of soul, R&B, world, and pop. Kelly is an extremely hardworking and dedicated artist who takes nothing for granted. In a very short time, she has come to local prominence with her amazing voice and radiant talent.
With her first single, Africa, the young artist transports us into an Afro-Jazz World. Her new EP, Entre Deux, produced by Norman Dugas, Daniel Roy, and Chris Burke-Gaffney, is a combination of folk and world music. After its release, Entre Deux received numerous accolades, including a nomination for Best EP at the 2017 Gala de musique Trille Or. Kelly was also nominated for BreakOut West 2017’s Francophone Artist and World Artist of the Year. With over 200 performances under her belt in four years, Kelly has won first place in several contests, including the Festival international de la chanson de Granby, Chant’Ouest, and Découvertes franco-manitobaines.
