Never easy to make your own career when you’re the ‘daughter of’, but Charlotte Gainsbourg seems to be doing just fine. As the daughter of two famous people, English actress Jane Birkin and singer songwriter Serge Gainsbourg, she had to try twice as hard. Thanks to her charisma and her warm husky voice she has become a grand dame of the French chanson. Her music holds the middle between electronic synth pop and vulnerable, sometimes dramatic songs. Her last album ‘Rest’ (2017) has been her biggest success so far. Monday 5 August will be a legendary day with two ‘grand dames’ live on our stage, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Patti Smith. A ne surtout pas manquer!
