For 20 years, Barbara is no longer there. Really ? We have never sung it so much, we have never talked so much about it.
Carla Bruni, Zazie, Sandrine Kiberlain, or Calogero claim everywhere its major influence. Bénabar continues on stage "tell when will you come back?" Jeanne Cheral walks its integral in its mp3. Vincent Delerm slips his name in the middle of his singing tour ... and almost none of those were born when Barbara offered her first big hit "Nantes" in 1963.
Dizzying work, the lightning elegance and the always hot news, as it sounds just modesty, depth, integrity. Barbara remains one of the most singular artists of French song, which continues to influence the younger generation.
On November 24, 1997 Barbara disappeared at age 67, never to have spared herself, to have burned her life with the same ardor that she put to singing. But disappeared or not, Barbara is more than ever there.
