2013 brings with it the 50th anniversary of the death of ‘the little sparrow’, so it is apt that French-born cabaret star Caroline Nin has created a performance in honour of Piaf’s music and tragic but extraordinary life.
Caroline Nin made her debut in the late 80s at the Hollywood Savoy in Paris, a swing and jazz venue. A classic femme fatale with charm and intrigue, Caroline Nin has a captivatingly rich voice and a large musical repertoire from Piaf to Minnelli, Bassey to Brel to her own compositions.
Caroline is currently the lead singer of the famous nightclub on the Champs Elysees, the Paris Lido where her predecessors included the likes of Piaf herself, Judy Garland, Bette Midler, Shirley Maclaine, Josephine Baker and Noel Coward.
A finalist in the 2011 Helpmann Awards for Best Cabaret Performer, Nin’s frank and tender bi-lingual tribute to France’s most famous chanteuse is spine-tingling as she breathes new life into familiar anthems. This Piaf tribute is not an impersonation, but an empathetic homage by a fellow Parisian chanteuse.
‘When Nin sings in her soulful, just husky-enough voice, the room strains to listen and hairs on the backs of necks stand up. An evening rich in poignant poetry.’
