french acoustic // soul

Zaz’s (Isabelle Geoffroy) music reminds me of Caro Emerald’s. Her voice however, is completely different and quite unlike the mellow sultry voice of Caro – and the songs demand that. Her music evokes vintage nostalgia, with passion and zest. “Je Veux” and “Ni Oui Ni Non” express this perfectly.

    Fantastique! :)

    A french Emelda May. Var Gud

  3. Ryan :

    “Je veux” cet album!

  4. Olivier :

    That’s really funny. In France, she’s sort of the equivalent of a really crap Justin Bieber- a fake punk, over-marketed by the worst main TV channel one can have.

    Translate to French: You should learn how to play the trumpet. because a muted trumpet with the guitar would sound great where those doo doo’s go. just whip it out when your not singing.

    outstanding i must say.

    Great voice!

  8. Chris :

    Can I recommend this video – the double bass is amazing. Interesting that she’s not serious/poppy in France – I just love her voice though.

  9. Tom McColo :

    Awesome voice, got to hear more of it

  10. Diana De La Roche :

    since now my favorite one! :)

    Haa! ZaZ is so cool. Why didn’t I think to write this for aurgasm ;-) Anyway, glad that she’s been written about now. ZaZ trumps Caro imho. Although I like both a lot.

    OUTSTANDING!, found it on stumble, replayed it 4 times, absolutely love it (first time i’ve enjoyed something enough to post an online comment)

  13. Random :

    Please dont use words such as “outstanding”, “amazing”, “great” about Zaz. Just as Olivier said, Zaz is nothing more than a joke. The lyrics are hilariously awful and I realy feel bad for french music every time I hear this song.

    You kiddin me right now? I have full body chills right now. This girl has got spirit, I have no idea what she’s saying-but I feel completely convinced and included in on the party!

  15. Swax :

    Do not worry, it’s probably compatriots (I’m French). They tend to be jealous of anyone who succeeds, it’s like that in France.

  16. саша :

    отлично поёт ниче не сказать!

  17. Влад :

    ништяк :)

  18. Catlain :

    суперский голос)))

    Удивительно. А почему бы просто не сказать что это просто очень харизматично. Просто цепляет и все. Причем всем и голосом и непосредственным видом. Почему обязательно нужно все систематизировать и искать место для этого в “стройных” представлениях о культуре. А ведь это просто чья то душа. Комарады “Olivier” и “Random” , человечество давным давно придумало бируши (штуки такие для затыкания ушей, если вдруг не понятно), дабы не смущаться “осквернением”. Время рассудит чему и какое место, а не чьи либо местечковые представления,тем более отягощенные личной предвзятостью. Мира Вам. А эта музыка просто цепляет и поднимает настроение.
