Floanne is currently working on a set of original songs. Here are a few demos.
Edith Piaf Alive
Running Time: 1 hour
A modern twist to vintage tunes, in a musical play about the Little Sparrow.
Floanne, an authentic ‘chanteuse’ and farm girl opens the door to her culture, taking a closer look at the legendary ‘Little Sparrow’ —with that husky, mournful voice so popular in the 1940’ and 50’s.
The performance is a culturally rich and moving presentation that will make you smile, a medley of vintage tunes… with a modern twist. Down to earth, sensual and bohemian as her beloved Edith, Floanne will make you discover her poignant music and share her unconventional life.
Love is French
Running Time: 1 hour
Floanne explores, rather academically… love, with a comedic flavor, a lot of personality, and romantic overtones will leave you with much to explore and talk about. Even if you disagree.
Treat yourself to a night in Paris without even leaving home. Floanne envelopes you with style and originality, and leaves at the end of the night full of romance and forgetting where you are and where you came from… like in a Woody Allen movie. Come and revisit love from where it first originated, France, because after all French is the language of love, and Love is French.
