Ooh La La! -- VoiceBox #5 Visits La Belle France

Sunday, June 21, 2009

VoiceBox is NPR affiliate station KALW 91.7 FM's eclectic new radio show dedicated to the art of singing and the best of the vocal music scene.

Please join host Chloe Veltman this coming Friday, June 26, from 10 - 11 pm PST for the fifth and final broadcast in this exciting five-part pilot series.

With Bastille Day right around the corner and the world-famous French balladeering duo Les Nubians playing at the Stern Grove Festival this weekend, VoiceBox heads to Europe for a sonic rendezvous from some of France’s greatest female vocalists past and present.

With special guests Raquel Bitton and Laetitia Mailhes as tour guides, Chloe explores the roots of the traditional French chanson and its impact (or lack thereof) on subsequent generations of artists from the “Yé Yé Girls” of the 1960s to the latest electronica and rap divas.

  • Speaking of great voices, your French program reminded me of Marie Daulne, leader of Zap Mama. Ok, Belgique. Ok, late 1990s, not 60s. Still, an absolutely incredible and amazing voice and musician.
