The San Francisco Bay Area’s Ambassadors of French Chanson

Featuring Parisian singer Mimi Pirard, SonoMusette authentically recreates the moody and evocative sound of the Paris music scene of the Mid-20th Century.

SonoMusette’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 artisits.  This music has retained its power to charm and transport listeners and SonoMusette taps that nostalgia with artistry in both vocals and instrumentation. Inspired by the great performers of the era, such as Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel, Charles Trenet, and Django Reinhardt, along with contemporary musicians such as Zaz and Patrick Bruel, SonoMusette brings French Chanson to the “moderne” era.
