In order to commemorate 50 years since Edith Piaf’s death, Patricia Kaas launched the album „Kaas Chante Piaf”. She initiated a 2013 tour for promoting this album, in over 45 countries. Bucharest will warmly receive Patricia again, on 23th of June.

Patricia Kaas is a French singer and actress. Stylistically, her music is not classical “chanson”, but is closer to a mixture of pop music, jazz and classic.

Since the appearance of her debut album “Mademoiselle chante” (1988), Kaas has sold over 16 million records worldwide. She had her greatest success in Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Canada, Russia, Finland, and Korea with her third album “Je te dis vous”.

Patricia Kaas was born as the youngest of her family on December, 5th 1966 in Forbach, Lorraine, France, near the border of Germany. Her Franco-German heritage resulted in a constant interest in improving the relationship between the two countries.

Her mother encouraged Kaas to become a singer at a very young age. At the age of eight, Kaas was already singing songs by Sylvie Vartan, Dalida, Claude François and Mireille Mathieu, but also English-language songs such as “New York, New York”, at various small events. Her first great success came when she received first place at a pop song contest. At her first appearances, Kaas was already displaying the throaty, smoky voice that would lead to comparisons with Édith Piaf and Marlene Dietrich.
