Jibcae, Claire Huguenin’s solo project, is a total art work made of drama, irony and authenticity. […]

Jibcae {dƷıbkeı}

In her fragile but powerful ways the singer pulverises many genres, from jazz to cabaret often passing through folkloric sounds.

Jibcae is an onomatopoeia, a word that came up in an exercise of automatic writing on a keyboard. Jibcae is also the intimate and vulnerable face of a Swiss-French singer known for her inspiring collaborations with multiple other artists. And then, Jibcae is a record, the saved trace of an inner voice making her way out to the exterieur. Claire Huguenin is the exorcist of this voice. She plays with her organ from murmur to unleashed song and dives into her sentiments, her emotions. In her fragile but powerful ways the singer pulverises many genres, from Jazz to Cabaret often passing through Folcloric sounds. The dialogue between Malcom Braff on the piano, Julie Campiche on the harp and Jeremias Keller’s basslines embodies this vertiginous and intense baring.
