Patricia Kaas is the world’s most popular singer of French chanson, coupled with the blues and jazz, the owner of the inimitable voice – elegant, sensual and mysterious. She was born in France in December 1966. Big sad eyes, teenage awkwardness and boyish haircut, thin and fragile with a minimum of makeup on her face, thus she appeared on the stage. Her wardrobe consisted of a cap and modest little jackets, which are now hardly anyone remembers. Today she is elegant, refined, a femme fatale, who reduces men crazy with just one look of her bottomless blue eyes. French pop singer and actress Kaas is claimed to be the first international artist to visit 28 Russian cities, where she is the most favorite singer.
“Kaas chante Piaf“ meaning “Kaas Sings Piaf” is Patricia Kaas’ new project, focusing on 21 of the great Edith Piaf’s iconic titles, arranged by Abel Korzeniowski, who also composed the music for Madonna’s W.E.
This show, commemorating 50 years since the death of Piaf, will open at some of the world’s most prestigious venues the Royal Albert Hall in London, Carnegie Hall in New-York, Olympia in Paris, Operetta Theater in Moscow, Sejong Cultural Center in Seoul, etc.
Although designed primarily as a live show, “Kaas chante Piaf“ meaning “Kaas Sings Piaf” will also be released as an album. Revisiting the greatest hits of Edith Piaf, this album is central to her tribute to the great French singer.
