HA NOI (VNS) — French band Brigitte will rock the stage in Ha Noi on Thursday night.
The band consists of two songstresses Sylvie Hoarau and Aurelie Saada, who pursued their own careers as solo artists before forming a duo.
They named the band Brigitte as a tribute to famous French women such as movie star Brigitte Bardot, singer of avant-garde music Brigitte Fontaine and actress Brigitte Lahaie.
In addition to regular performances in Paris music clubs, the duo has also contributed to the soundtrack of many movies. Their remix of Ma Benz by Supreme de NTM got significant airtime on major music channels in France, including MTV.
In 2011, the band released their debut album Et vous, tu m'aimes (And You, Do You Love Me?), which went platinum with 150,000 copies sold. The following year, they won Victoires de le musique, an annual award granted by the French Ministry of Culture to recognise the best musical artists of the year.
Brigitte's performance in Ha Noi will start at 8pm on Thursday night at L'Espace, 24 Trang Tien Street. On Friday the duo will travel to Hue where they will perform again. — VNS
