“First-class chansons, paired with an extraordinary and lively charisma of the singer and her instrumentalists”
“The unusual and enchanting French lady made us breathe Parisian air wrapped in chansons ”
“The illusion of her nostalgic Paris, wonderfully Parisian, three times more beautiful than reality…
we are most fascinated by the singer and her accordionist ”
“There was no doubt from the very beginning, that evening would
become a delight,
nothing but delight, and the atmosphere these three French ambassadors brought
to Heidenheim was so wonderful, so ingenious, so stylish ”
She is accompanied by professional musicians mainly from Paris, who perform with her in a duo (accordion), trio (accordion / piano or guitar), quartet (accordion /piano / bass) or sextet (accordion / piano / bass / saxophone / drums) in France or Germany.
