There was a muse living in Rive Gauche. She was clever, talented, and courageous. Her unique personality and voice swept a group of literati and philosophers off their feet in post-war Paris. She was Juliette Greco. This irreplaceable singer in the history of Parisian pop music is a dear friend of Simon de Beauvoir and Satre and a lifelong favorite of Miles Davis, the most outstanding jazz trumpeter in the United States.
Juliette Greco was pivotal in the post-war Parisian culture looking for rebirth. There were traces of her everywhere in Rive Gauche. Simply put, she dominated that scene for a long time. During that period, in addition to making her acting career, she made Paris more elegant because of her existence. If we were to talk about the old Chanson in Paris, she is the first person that springs to mind.
This performance is selected and performed by Nathalie Gauhard, an opera anthropologist from Paris. Although she is not a professional singer, she has done a lot of research on Juliette Greco's lifelong compositions. She hopes that through this music, audiences will get a glance of that beautiful Paris, full of passions and emotions with all the reunions and departures.
