Kaylan Arnold, Bri La Pelúa and Leau, bring their diverse music, roots, and personal stories to the stage for the Women of the Caribbean concert.
Singer, songwriter, producer, and instrumentalist Kaylan Arnold is a South Floridian of Belizean and Haitian roots. Her music is an original blend of her influences — reggae, jazz and Hip-Hop — while her lyrics tackle weighty issues such as self-worth, greed, endangered love, gratitude, and corruption. Music is a vehicle for Kaylan for the changes she wants to see. Her first single debuted at #60 on the global reggae iTunes chart, and every one of her releases since has charted in the iTunes top 100. Her debut album, Hydrate, is out now on all streaming platforms.
Born in San Juan, Puerto Rican, Bri La Pelúa stands out with her voice, energy, and peculiar way of playing the Cajón. A self-taught musician, composer, and music producer, Bri has sang in major stages such as El Coliseo de Puerto Rico José Miguel Agrelot and at Madison Square Garden, New York, where she performed before the historic fight between Amanda Serrano vs. Katie Taylor in April. Bri released her first singles as a soloist titled “Ay Papá” and “Eres Mujer” in 2020.
Born Laureine Lilavois, Leau is a versatile singer. A graduate of the Universite de Côte d’Azur, France, with a degree in Psychology, Leau brings her Haitian roots to bear in a broad range of styles, including R&B, soul, Haitian Konpa, and jazz.
