Floanne’s charming show is an intimate medley of classic songs from her native France and adopted America. Reviving some of the most beautiful French songs and a few American standards, “Floin’ to America” recounts her personal and professional journey from French farm girl to sophisticated New York City entertainer. In a love declaration between France and America, her sensual voice, empowered by her smile and strong on-stage personality, shares a tale of patience, passion and ambition, with a cheerful touch.
Close your eyes, as those tunes take you back to the times and places, which have been in people’s life for generations. They are still relevant today, carrying out strong memories and emotions. With Amsterdam by Jacques Brel, you’ll see the hardship and the melancholy engraved on the faces of the sailors working in grey Northern Europe. Let yourself go on Edith Piaf’s Milord, a song that celebrates the pleasure of life, delivered by a playful and seductive Floanne.
With a program including a repertoire from the strongest performers of all times, including Barbara, Brigitte Bardot, Juliette Greco, Françoise Hardy and Edith Piaf, but also Charles Aznavour, Jacques Brel, Serge Gainsbourg and Charles Trénet, Floanne continues the tradition of cabaret and French chanson. As French-Armenian legend Charles Aznavour once sang: “Emmenez-moi au bout de la terre (Take me away beyond the horizon).”
