VIVE LA FÊTE Honors French Chansonnier CHRISTOPHE Who Passed Away Last Week

Clips that will have an impact on your eyes and your ears…

23 April 2020

Thanks to my musical mother I learned a lot about French singers who were genuine
stars and started their careers back in the sixties, like Johnny Halliday, Michel Polnareff, Jacques Dutronc and of course CHRISTOPHE who scored a series of top hits with ‘Les Marionettes‘ and ‘Aline‘ as his most famous ones.

A couple of months ago Belgian’s internationally recognized dance duo VIVE LA FÊTE worked together with the beloved French chansonnier to create a new version of LES MARIONETTES. Unfortunately, their dear, Italy born, friend passed away last week on
17 April at the age of 74. To honor Christophe with whom they had a strong bond the
band decided to release the tremendously fitting video clip they made for that classic humdinger. It’s a vintage Vive La Fête knockout and a whirling homage to a great artist.
