The first thing I thought when I heard her voice was “Ooh-la-la, someone plays a CD of Edith Piaf”. But when I listened a bit better, it wasn’t the voice of Edith Piaf. But it came close, a pure sound full with passion. When I walked around the corner I saw a street organ with a cheerful dressed woman behind it. There were many people around her. Not only for her singing and entertaining, but also for her decorated organ. She is a popular folksinger in Montmartre. I’ve never heard anyone sing so beautiful during a live performance.
If you’re lucky you find her near Place du Tertre, which is near the Sacré Coeur on top of Butte-Montmartre in Paris. She is a folk singer who has a lot of fun during her performances. It doesn’t matter if there is one person or a whole group, she keeps singing full with passion and enjoyment. I had a great time. It annoyed me that there were so many people who only took pictures instead of listening to her voice (or buying her CD!).
