SonoTriette: French Chanson of 20th Century Paris


SonoTriette is three members from French Music Group SonoMusette. Featuring Parisian singer Mimi Pirard, SonoTriette authentically recreates the evocative and moody sound of the music scene of mid-1900s Paris.

Performing songs made famous by Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel, Charles Trenet, and other iconic performers of the era, SonoMusette taps that nostalgia with artistry in vocals and instrumentation.
SonoTriette's 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.
