Yolande Laroche

Yolande Laroche, a Franco-Taiwanese Canadian artist based in Ottawa/Hull, reflects on her hyphenated identity, life and death, and themes of alienation in her debut solo project under the pseudonym Orchidae. Soft, hypnotic melodies and mantras intertwine with minimal yet meaningful, at-times psychedelic orchestration. She is currently recording a full length album set to release in 2022.

As a classically trained clarinetist and a touring/session musician, Yolande has worked with artists such as Rayannah, Nick Schofield, Luka Kuplowski, Keturah, Cedric Noel, and several others. She is also a core member of art-rock band Pony Girl and ambient chamber project mal/aimé.
