Cyrielle Formaz is a Swiss artist from Valais, born in January 1995. She entered the Conservatory at the age of 7 to learn the guitar, which she will never leave aside, and the musical language for which she obtained a Certificate in 2013. With the time, she slowly switches from classic to other genres, and starts songwriting and singing.
In 2011, she co-founded the pop-folk project Macaô with Pascal Vigolo, in which she’s a guitarist, lead singer and songwriter. From time to time, she also plays the mandolin and the ukulele in the band. Macaô released an album in 2013 and an EP in 2016 and won a few springboards (Windstock, Unilive, Ferme-Asile, Paillotte, etc.). They finished second at the Mycoke Music Soundcheck contest.
In 2016, Cyrielle started MEIMUNA, a project in which she is the singer and songwriter. She also likes to create the visual world of her projects so she realises the album covers, posters and music videos… In order to improve her writings, she took part in the Médaille d’Or workshop in the Jura (CH) in 2015 with professionals such as Jean Fauque (Alain Bashung’s songwriter) and in the famous « Rencontres d’Astaffort » (FR) in 2016 with Francis Cabrel. In 2017, the song Meimuna won the Prize for Best Demo in the pop category at the m4music’s Demotape Clinic contest.
