Edith Piaf Concert
French actress and singer Floanne Ankah recounts the Piaf story in recognition of the 50th anniversary of her death. This authentic ‘chanteuse’ and farm girl opens the door to her culture, taking a closer look at the legendary ‘Little Sparrow’ —with that husky, mournful voice so popular in the 1940’ and 50’s.
The performance is a culturally rich and moving presentation that will make you smile, a medley of vintage tunes… with a modern twist. Down to earth, sensual and bohemian as her beloved Edith, Floanne will make you discover her poignant music and share her unconventional life. Yes, both Floanne and Edith Piaf will be attending the rendez-vous.

The youthful twenties-something performed with abundant energy. Her enthusiasm and palpable bliss bespoke genuine enchantement with her subject.

A new "little sparrow" has landed. Ankah infuses her daringly dramatic evocation of Piaf's art with a contemporary energy and rhythm.
The last time I felt shivers down my spine was at Floanne’s concert. Her voice is very unique with a ‘je ne sais quoi’ hypnotizing effect.
—Agathe Leroy, She is French
The show was bewitching; we were all suspended to Floanne's lips and sensual moves. This journey was intense and full of nostalgia, humor, rhythm, love, life, and experience.

Floanne brings a message of hope and happiness with rhythm and ease.
