synopsis

France does not lack in protest singers like Georges Brassens or Jean Ferrat. Even so, Colette Magny cuts a unique figure. An imposing and uncompromising figure filled with energy and projecting a resounding voice filled with Gaelic confidence, Colette Magny had an unusually long career from the 1960s through to the 1990s, going through free jazz to anti-poetry and blues in a creative effervescence that would have been squashed by more traditional areas of show business.
