Singer, rapper, flutist, and eminently cool human being La Dame Blanche bridges the gap between countless musical universes with unparalleled style.

The result is an unprecedented melting pot of musical styles old and new—heavy enough to fit snugly in any modern nightclub, inventive enough to excite anyone interested in the shape of world music in the age of globalization.
