Her endless exploration and musical experiments has just arrived at a new destination: Jazz. Her very first solo album "Après un rêve" in collaboration with Nashville musicians will be released in Fall 2014, and the printed music will be published at the end of 2014. In the album, she challenges the same transformation that Après un rêve, a classical french song, has undergone by keeping the identity but in a new style.
Stay in tune!
