She is one of the most successful French artists of the past decade, and not just from a French point of view. Singer Isabelle Geffroy, AKA ZAZ, has fans on every continent. Yet the basis of her music is the classic French chanson, often with a pop or gypsy jazz feeling. Her voice is slightly smoky and easily wins fans. She broke through in 2010 with Je Veux and has worked with Quincy Jones and Charles Aznavour. On her latest album Effet Miroir, she is more explicitly looking for a global audience. Its first single was Qué Vendrá, sung in Spanish, and the album also contains songs with a somewhat reggae or Afro-pop beat. The album’s title translates as ‘mirror effect’, and ZAZ explains this as follows: “If we look at the world, we often see ourselves.” That’s the deal with ZAZ: she is the audience’s darling. When we hear her songs, we hear ourselves.
