Born and brought up in the South of France, Monique studied singing, accordion and piano at the Conservatoire in Nimes. After completing her studies she travelled extensively throughout Europe and Africa before settling in London.
She is now firmly established on the UK music scene, performing regularly in theatres, festivals, concert halls and specialist cabaret venues. She has been a champion of the music of Corsica and of performers from French Canada.
Her shows blend world music with jazz and humour.
Her second album, Paris Lite, recorded with the sensational Paris Lite Band, was released by Irregular in 2006.
