About Barbara

When Barbara passed away in 1997, France lost its last cabaret legend, thereby closing an illustrious chapter of its musical history. A truly generous and humble artist, Barbara insisted on living up to her audience's expectations, and was constantly questioning her success. She contributed to major evolutions in mentalities of a mainly masculine music business; having gained Georges Brassens' respect stands as a major feminist breakthrough in its own right. Her songbook includes many classics like "Göttingen," "Nantes," "Quand Ceux Qui Vont," "A Mourir Pour Mourir," "L'Aigle Noir," "Dis Quand Reviendras-Tu?," and "Ma Plus Belle Histoire d'Amour." ~ Olivier Duboc
