Hillary Sargeant is a Trinidad-born singer based in Israel, whose sound has been described as "a journey of ethnic and African rhythms, from the Caribbean to the Middle East, that transcends messages globally with soulful grooves and textures of diverse cultures," and has been compared to the music of Curtis Mayfield, Sade, Fela Kuti, Nina Simone and Salif Ketia.
Sargeant, originally a classical music singer, moved to Israel in the mid-80s when her uncle, renowned musician Vin Cardinal, invited her to perform with him in Tel Aviv. A survivor of breast cancer and economic hardships, Sargeant established her solo project in 2007 with a debut single called "Fanga," and has since performed with her band worldwide.
