I wanted to start thursday evening a little calmer and since I haven’t been to The Night Owl for a while anyway, I decided to go and see Azelyne. You could say it was a french start.
Starting with Serge Gainsbourg and Charles Aznavour, Azelyne took us right from the beginning on a journey to the nostalgic heart of France and made me feel like roaming the streets of Paris in the 1950/60s. Edith Piaf was of course on her setlist as well as Patrick Bruel and Zaz, but my personal highlight was her version of Jacques Brel’s “Amsterdam”, which she performed in a beautiful reminiscent mood. Singing also pop, Azelyne strength are chansons. Her deeper voice fits very well to the instrumental accompaniment that characterize the chanson style. Very authentic.
Edith Piaf, Charles Aznavour and Michel Sardou
Azelyne comes from Belgium and has visited a conservatory for more than ten years: solfege, piano, classic singing and dancing. She has also sung several times in public, as she is a soloist in the choir of her school. Here in Second Life she has been performing since 2017 to sing and share french songs, mostly chansons. On her song list you can find titles from Edith Piaf, Charles Aznavour and Michel Sardou amongst others. As she has no calendar make sure to get her subscribo or catch her biweekly on thursdays; 12pm at The Night Owl.
The Night Owl is an international and romantic park that offers live music every day with a break on saturdays. The range of the presented music styles includes jazz, blues, rock, funk, folk, varieties and even poets. It is worth a visit.
Thank you Azelyne for a very french and nostalgic hour!
