SonoMusette - Music from 20th Century Paris
SonoMusette recaptures the moody, melancholic sound and spirit of mid twentieth-century Paris. Inspired by the great performers of the era, such as Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel, and Django Reinhardt along with contemporary artists such as Zaz and Patrick Bruel. This music has retained its power to charm and transport audiences, and SonoMusette taps that nostalgia with artistry in vocals and instrumentation.
The band features French chanteuse Mimi Pirard whose renditions of these timeless French classics provide a freshness and excitement that is contemporary, yet faithful to the spirit and tradition of the original versions. Few singers are capable of doing justice to Piaf and Brel, and even fewer can match Pirards mesmerizing interpretations and powerful delivery.
The band is comprised of period instrumentation featuring Robert Lunceford - accordion, Isaac Vandeveer - guitar and bass, Jan Martinelli - upright bass and piano, and Richard Andrews on drums.
"SonoMusette is the most exciting group of musicians I have heard in some years! They are refreshingly unique and have talent and dedication to - with grace and clarity - stretch the edges of our world of music. The group spectacularly captures, channels, and delivers the music of Paris." Lynn Newton, Earlfest Coordinator
"SonoMusette creates and captures vintage Parisian music with passion and power."
