A summer French escape of Music, Food & Friends
Is a great event, sponsorised by Renault to bring people together - promoting the French Music, food and lifestyle.
There is two main events : one in Melbourne, one in Sydney - let's have a giant picnic together !
Music Line Up :
Lou Doillon : Fulfilling a promise made two years ago to the Australian fans, the talented singer Lou Doillon is making her highly anticipated So Frenchy debut in 2016. For her lastest LP the former Actor-model and now singer-songwritter has moved on from her accoustic debut to find a richer sound (produced by the acclaimed Canadian Indies, Timber Timbre), and a series of new songs that move crowds with and honesty and soulful brillance.
Brigitte : Brigitte ( actually a duo, Aurelie Saada and Sylvie Hoarau) also sings personal songs, while playing homage to 1970s divas at the same time. their unique sound of lounge-pop, retro-folk sizzling disco has been wildly popular, as the duo's first album going double platinum and the follow-up " A la bouche que veux-tu" ( Mouth of Plenty) about modern desire has proved. Highly danceable
Hindi Zahra : The moroccan born Hindi Zahra has been decribed as a North-African Patti Smith and likened to a modern day Billie Holiday for her mesmerizing mix of folk and blues. This super talented multi-instrumentalist brings inspiration from around the world to her heartfeit storytelling, and the result is simply beautiful. Sensational music that always makes a conenction with audiences.
Soviet Suprem : Hw to describe the final act, Soviet Suprem? Quite simply, there's no-one else like them, gleefully throwing light punk, Bolshol, Gypsy beats, Hip hop and over the top iron curtan theatrics into the mix. This Balkan-electro collective is an elite musical commando force of unconventional cool, and their rousing tune will have everyone falling into line and dancing up a strom as the sun sets on another year.
