Andrina's undeniable joie de vivre spreads like wildfire on the prairies of her native Manitoba. A total keener and performer since childhood, Andrina finds her greatest love in music and her biggest reward standing in front of an audience. Her teenage years saw her lending her fiery vocal style to local funk and blues bands, playing late into the cold Winnipeg nights to keep warm. In early 2001, she joined acclaimed vocal group Madrigaïa, with whom she toured extensively. Committed and driven, Andrina is a self-taught guitarist who also utilizes her piano and percussion skills to aid in her candid, impassioned songwriting. Andrina's adventurous nature has led her to travel far and wide, solo and in the company of friends. This seeker of soul connections found second homes in both Mexico and Louisiana, where she fell in love with the music, languages, people and cultures of these hotbeds of North American history. An eternal student of life, this multi-talented songstress is a founding member of Juno Award-winning group, Chic Gamine.
