About Riva Nyri Précil
Born in Brooklyn, Riva Nyri Precil grew up in Haiti where she was exposed to and studied under many of the great masters of Haiti’s cultural and artistic scene. Riva received her BA in Music Therapy from Loyola University of New Orleans, became the founder & CEO of a bespoke jewelry company “Love, Nyri” and the author of her Haitian Creole children’s book set in Jacmel, “Anaëlle Ak Lasirèn”.

Her debut solo album in Creole, “Perle De Culture,” is a fusion of traditional Haitian songs, soul, African tones, and jazz elements, followed by a collaborative band album by Bohio Music “Ayiti Nan Kay La” and most recently her children’s lullaby album “Dodo Titit”. Riva also teaches traditional Haitian folklore through a workshop she’s established called “Tout Se Pa” which welcomes all levels to learn the basics of Haitian dance.

Riva’s work embodies the beauty she sees in her heritage through her singing, dancing, jewelry designs and writing. Riva continues to perform in New York City and globally and is working on her next studio album set to release Spring 2024.
