    A Touch Of Baroque

    Wednesday, March 8, 2017

    De cultures mêlées, russe et algérienne, le chant de Sherazade – à l’image de sa vie – est vibrant, sensuel et métissé. Rebelle, définitivement féminine et intimement mélangée, elle a une bouleversante fragilité. Basée à Paris, elle appartient – avec les cinq musiciens de LavionRose – à la famille de ces artistes inclassables et cosmopolites qui […]
