Description

Joséphine Baker remains the icon of French song with hits like "Paris, Paris" or "J'ai deux amours". However, a much more eclectic repertoire is hiding behind those key titles.

This selection of radio recordings (1944/1953) allows to discover or rediscover her numerous South-American inspired songs.

Whether she sings in French, English, Italian, Portuguese or Spanish, Josephine Baker, accompanied by her husband Jo Bouillon's orchestra, masters the rhythms of boleros, mambos and other rumbas more than anyone else.

On top of that, two historical recordings are also included: an interpretation of "J'ai deux amours", produced few days before she went back to Paris in 1944, and two extracts of her show in Harlem in 1951 in front of a frantic audience.
