Keren Ann: songstress with a world of love and loss
Keren Ann, who is viewed as the “Queen of Chansons” in France, is coming back to Shanghai for her tour of China.
Born to a Russian-Jewish father and a Dutch-Javanese mother, Ann is a singer, songwriter, composer and producer based in Paris, Tel Aviv and New York.
This versatile artist can not only play the guitar, piano and clarinet, but also engineers and writes choir and musical arrangements.
She has released seven solo albums and has co-written and co-produced four albums and two operas. Besides, she contributed seven songs to two films.
She will perform her own works, including many of her staples: “My Name is Trouble,” “Jardin D’hiver,” “Not Going Anywhere,” “You’re Gonna Get Love” and “All the Beautiful Girls” in her live performance here.
Ann features a gentle and intangible tone through which she expresses her understanding about life, love, loss, attachment and detachment.
After Beijing, Ann is coming to Shanghai.
She will continue her tour in Wuxi, Hangzhou and Chongqing before she goes back to Paris.
