Athésia is currently working on a new album, set to be a collaboration with Australian and International artists. The album is scheduled for release in late 2017 and will be a musical journey of her Haitian roots. People will soon be able to discover the rhythms of rara, twoubadou ballads, rasin and compas right here in Sydney. Being the pre-eminent Canadian-Haitian-Creole singer in Australia, Athésia feels it is her duty to share Haiti’s vibrant colourful music and culture with Australian audiences.
