Coming soon this March, the Brigitte will open the Francophonie Week with a unique concert on Friday 14th March at Alliance française de Singapour!
A throwback to the flower power era, ’60s revivalists Brigitte are a French female duo combining lounge-pop, retro folk, and French cabaret to produce an authentic hippie-chic sound. Named in honor of several of the decade’s icons (Bardot, Fontaine, Lahaie), Aurelie Maggiori, who had previously recorded under the name of Mayane Delem, and Sylvie Hoarau, formerly the lead vocalist in Parisian rock band Vendetta, formed their duo in 2008. The pair signed to Wagram Records in 2009 and released an EP, Battez-Vous, which featured a unique take on Suprême NTM’s ’90s hip-hop anthem “Ma Benz.” Their debut album, Et Vous, Tu M’aimes?, was released in 2011.
With 150,000 pieces sold for their 1st album, The Brigitte were awarded the “Platinum Disc” at Les Victoires de la musique “Révélations Scène” in 2012.
The French singer –M- (real name Matthieu Chedid) will also be part of the programme during the Francophonie Week, with a concert on 16th March at Kallang Theatre.
Presented by Figure8 Agency, -M- is the brilliant result of contemporary romanticism, sensitive songwriting and a devastating guitar sound. Since popping up in the 90’s with a cartoon-esque look, an M-shaped haircut and a penchant for donning pink suits in the style of Prince or Elton Jon, -M- has been unabashedly reigning over the French pop rock scene. Famous for delivering grandiose performances in extravagant décors, -M-‘s half-real, half-disguised character has been captivating music lovers for over a decade. His debut appearance in Singapore promises to dazzle the audience – whether you’re French, a Francophile or simply intrigued by this multi-talented man of mystery.
Awarded during Les Victoires de la musique in 2000, he was proclaimed the “Best Male Artist” and was awarded the “Best Live Show of the year”.
