Surya-Anita sings Edith Piaf
“No, I have no regret” says Edith Piaf because all that she done she done it for her passion that gave her the strength to follow the worst situations.
Her music was often autobiographical with her singing reflecting her life, with her specialty being of chanson and ballads, particularly of love, loss and sorrow.
The sensitive vocals of Surya-Anita, french singer, carries the audience to another time, interpreting a large Piaf's repertoire, with very and less famous songs, which reflect the passion recreating a part in each stage of Edith Piaf's career.
Surya-Anita and her acoustic band manage to capture the soul of Paris, and as they are all passionate by jazz music, a lot of songs are open to the improvisation.
