Get a taste of Paris Chansons here:
NEW music video featuring their original, looping version of Joe Dassin’s classic: “Et si tu n’existais pas - If you didn’t exist."
Paris Chansons is Los Angeles’s premier French performing group. Recently featured on the CBS news, they are known for their original renditions of French favorites from Aznavour, Brel, Dassin, Piaf, Montand all the way to contemporary artists like Zaz. Their exhilarating performances are punctuated by traditional jazz standards in addition to classics in Russian, Italian, and other languages.
Three multilingual singers bring an unparalleled diversity to their shows. Julia Kantor, originally from Ukraine, lived and studied in France where she discovered in French music a soul connection that still imbues every performance. She entrances from the stage with a sultry voice and dynamic presence. Together with her husband, Jacob, a Russian-born singer/songwriter, they launched Paris Chansons. Max Cohen grew up in Morocco, where he was steeped in French music, particularly the songs of Enrico Macias. Max’s rich, velvety tone delivers beautifully nuanced renditions of his favorites, complete with a signature North African lilt.
