Montreal singer Dominique Fils-Aimé finally got to premiere her latest show in Montreal at the Outremont Theatre in the fall, following the release of her 2021 album Three Little Words, and it was an inspiring night of intimate music steeped in the blues, jazz and soul of her ambitious trilogy chronicling the history of African-American music. Expect the same here.

Free outdoor: Cécile Doo-Kingué. Rogers Stage. 9 and 11 p.m.

This too-talented artist grew up in New York City part of a first-generation family from Cameroon and now calls Montreal home. This singer-guitarist specializes in blazing intense bluesy rock with an African twist and it’s safe bet that’s going to be the go-to party on the street Sunday night.

The 42nd Montreal International Jazz Festival continues through July 9. For program, tickets and more information, visit montrealjazzfest.com.
