A throwback to the flower power era, the 60’s sounds of Brigitte whose music combines lounge-pop, retro folk and French cabaret are just mesmerising. Their first time concert in Hong Kong is not to be missed under any circumstances!
Named in honor of several of the 60’s icons such as Brigitte Bardot, Aurelie Saada and Sylvie Hoarau formed the duo in 2008. After recording a cover version of Les Vacances au Bord de la Mer for the film “Thelma, Louise et Chantal”, the pair signed with Wagram Records and released their first EP, Battez-Vous, which featured a unique take on Suprême NTM’s 90’s hip-hop anthem Ma Benz. The latter became a hit in France. In the same year, the duo toured for more than twenty concerts in France. Very soon Brigitte became a huge success. Their videos are everywhere on TV, internet and they make the cover page of magazines such as ELLE, VOGUE and LES INROCKS.
Nominated for the French music awards 2015, Brigitte is now a phenomenon!
This duo's amazing sound has been used in fashion too, the English version of "Oh La La" was used for a Lancôme ad and "La Poudrière" was used as soundtrack for a short directed by Aurélie Saada for Vogue Eyewear. Brigitte is also always dressed by French couturier and designer Alexis Mabille. Great music plus fashion with Alexis Mabille's creations= guaranteed to be a great evening.
