In Focus: Françoise Hardy

Paris, 09.05.19

Focus on Françoise Hardy

In the 1960s Françoise Hardy emerged, with effervescent fashion, into the boy's club of French pop music, quickly becoming an international sensation and a national treasure. Her famous sensuous singing voice, now synonymous with monochrome French sophistication and cool, has often been imitated to the point of parody, but rarely matched. Unlike many contemporaries, Hardy was willing and able to write original material, and remained incredibly prolific up until her recent retirement.

This In Focus takes in the best of her romantic, nostalgic discography.
