CLARA LUCIANI

LES INNOCENTS

TINY RUINS

Pop songs are like perfumes. Some daze our senses for a season time; others impregnate our skin and memory on the longest term. Since the release of her album Sainte-Victoire in spring 2018, Clara Luciani has proved that her music, deftly swinging between sinuous groove, “joyfully grave” vocals and incisive lyrics, would not go under the “flash in the pan” category. An impression that has been confirmed on stage, where the lean brunette fires straight with her natural authority. It is, for that matter, recently awarded with a (Sainte) Victoire de la Musique for “Stage revelation”, that she will play at Fourvière.

“L’Autre Finistère”, “Un homme extraordinaire”, “Un monde parfait”, “Colore”… Les Innocents have found the secret formula for an equally charming and long-lasting pop song more than twenty years ago with this collection of classics, well-rooted in our popular memory. After a long hiatus, and being awarded with a Victoire de la Musique in 2016, the creative duet JP Nataf/Jean-Chri Urbain is planning on illuminating the summer in the wake of a dashing new record, 6 1/2.

This night will certainly open with awe when the New-Zealander Hollie Fullbrook alias Tiny Ruins take the stage, the world looks more poetic through the insights of this captivating siren.

Clara Luciani will receive the 2019 Raoul Breton prize.
