Success C r e at i v e HURRICANE FANTINE Russian by birth, Dominican at heart and radiating raw Australian spirit, the triple-threat singer/ songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, Fantine Pritoula, is taking Miami by storm with the aid of local legend Emilio Estefan. TEX T BY RONY MO FA N T I N E P H O T O S B Y J E S U S CO R D E R O Fantine is no stranger to success: She’s opened for soul siren Erykah Badu and hip-hop wild child Lupe Fiasco, followed by headlining honors in Australia and New Zealand. Now she’s looking to make a name for herself stateside. Fresh from lending her singing talents to the 16-piece Moscow Jazz Orchestra, Fantine is in the midst of a whirlwind promotional tour supporting her R&B hit “Reservation For Two” alongside her Latin single “Bachata De Rosa”. Her high-flying vocal range and lyrical depth make her a versatile force to be reckoned with. Look out for her Estefan-produced bilingual album, I Am Fantine, or catch her American debut performance at Gusman Concert Hall Nov. 1 during Festival Miami; 305.284.4940; FestivalMiami.com. 70
