Sylvie Cobo: glas, tolkala
Jean-Pierre: Caporossi: klavir, tolkala
Zadnji CD: Sylvie Cobo, a singer who matched her stage appearance
with an appropriately sounding name, La Baronne, is a musician who has
amazing vocal abilities. Like any other autodidactic with a strong creative
genius she too was attracted to many genres out of which she gained the
experience that she later developed into her own style. As a teenager she
was a street singer, tried her luck in rock music, sang in a bar, collaborated
in vocal ensembles at jazz band recordings, and even became a member of
a punk and rai band. She was drawn to jazz more and more and in 1995 she
met Emmanuel de Bonneville, composer and pianist, and started collaborating
with him in a duet. She abandoned all the other musical activities and
dedicated herself to her "chanson" that is difficult to define. It includes
everything from jazz and blues to spanish melody and elements of Maghreb.
La baronne sings her own sharp and straightforward lyrics. Her singing
is just as racy, passionate, and sometimes rough. Her full voice with a
wide range serves her as an instrument which she accompanies by percussion.
Most of the time she performs together with Emmanuel de Bonneville, who
also writes her music, or with Jean-Pierre Caporossi.
La baronne has performed over 400 times and the critics all agree that her girlish brat-like appearance, racy lyrics, and her unique and genuine musical expression full of temperament guarantee success with any public.
