Kareen Guiock-Thuram 'Nina' Tribute to Nina Simone. And for good reason, she is one of the French people's favourite journalists, at the head of 12.45 on M6 for the past 10 years. A familiar voice and silhouette also in the Parisian jazz clubs where she made her debut in the early 2000s, often invited by her mentor, the Caribbean jazz master Mario Canonge. A great voice, powerful and silky. Kareen Guiock-Thuram grew up between Cayenne, Pointe-à-Pitre and Paris. At the age of 13, she was already writing songs and publishing her first article. At 19, she was the editor-in-chief of a monthly cultural magazine, while continuing her studies until she obtained a master's degree in philosophy. She wrote dozens of songs, sometimes sung by others, or by herself, invited on albums. At the same time, her career as a journalist took off, and she became not only a presenter but also the editor-in-chief of the M6 news programme, which she presented in locks, natural and luminous. In 2023, Kareen Guiock-Thuram decided to take a break from the cameras and move towards the public as an artist. She chose to present her album first on stage, in concert, in the temple of jazz, the New Morning. An exceptional voice at the service of an exceptional repertoire, that of Nina Simone, 20 years after her death, with the album Nina (5 May 2023).
