Florence K

Host of C'est formidable!


Saturday 11pm–12am on CBC Radio One
Sunday 4pm–5pm on CBC Music

Award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter and pianist Florence K has a wide-ranging musical approach and performs in French, Spanish, English, and Portuguese with the same natural ease. Since 2005, this free-spirited, open-minded artist has had three Gold records, sold over 250,000 albums and received multiple accolades, including several Felix awards and Juno nominations. From 2011 to 2018, Florence hosted the radio show Ici Florence on Ici Musique, introducing and performing songs from the lands of salsa, jazz and bossa nova. In addition to her musical fame, Florence K has also broadened her audience through the publication in 2015 of her first book, Buena Vida, in which she opened up about her own battle against depression and anxiety. The book became a source of inspiration for many, helping to demystify mental illness and overcome its many challenges. Since then, Florence has published a novel, Lili Blues, and recorded three new albums, including her most recent opus, Estrellas, where she sings her love of Cuban music.
