A journey into French chanson tinged with jazz, resulting in a new album, “enivrez-vous”, available from 8 December 2023.

Musician since the age of 15, Nina began with classical guitar studies with Pedro Ibanez, which led her to discover Brazilian music and inspired her to sing. This was followed by numerous concerts and the recording of 2 albums with guitarist Hervé Hurtret: Aquarela do Brasil and Viramundo.

20 years ago, the Club Med adventure began. Nina was part of the Club Med Talent and performed in duo with Hervé Hurtret in Club Med villages, in France and abroad. In this context, in addition to the Brazilian repertoire, their international variety repertoire included songs by Sade, Kate Bush, Sting, … jazz standards, and French variety classics.

Since 2018, she has been developing a repertoire focused on French songs with guitarist Yann Viet, incorporating authors such as Barbara, Aznavour, Gainsbourg, Salvador… as well as original compositions and poems set to music (Baudelaire, G.Apollinaire…). The taste for jazz harmonies and the melodic richness of Yann Viet’s arrangements, combined with Nina’s Brazilian musical culture, have created a new and unique color to this repertoire.

This collaboration led to a brand new album “ENIVREZ-VOUS”, an album entirely dedicated to French song. The album features the finest writers of the repertoire, essential standards, and some unreleased tracks. This album, created with Yann Viet and under his artistic direction, was recorded with the collaboration of prestigious guests such as William Lecomte (keyboard and melodica), Olivier Soubeyran (Cello and bass), Sylvain Gontard (trumpet and flugelhorn), Marc Eliard (accordion), Hervé Hurtret (guitar), Jaco Largent, Julio Gonçalvès and Jean-Yves Roucan (percussions).

ENIVREZ-VOUS is distributed by Inouïe Distribution since December 8, 2023, available on all platforms and in record stores, and can be ordered at the following link: https://bfan.link/enivrezvous
