“SonoMusette in Concert” will recapture the sound and spirit of 20th Century Paris in iSonomusette’s second appearance at the New Cotati Cabaret at Congregation Ner Shalom, 85 LaPlaza, Cotati on Saturday, December 14 at 8 PM. The concert is a fundraiser for Ner Shalom.
French chanteuse, musette accordion, guitar, piano, upright bass, and drum kit combine to revive the evocative songs of the era.
This music has retained its power to charm and transport listeners, and SonoMusette taps that nostalgia with artistry in both vocals and instrumentation. Inspired by the great performers of the era, such as Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel, Charles Aznavour, and Django Reinhardt, along with contemporary artists such as Zaz and Patrick Bruel, SonoMusette brings French Chanson to the “moderne” era. Hear SonoMusette here.
Sonomusette comprises vocalist Mimi Pirard, Jan Martinelli on bass, Robert Lunceford on accordion, Jason Briggs on guitar and Richard Andrews on drums.
