VIDEOS - The great fortune teller of Paris has passed away. With her warm and sensual voice she magnified, with a unique talent as an interpreter, the words of the poets. From Je suis comme je suis à Undress me and Il ya plus après ... Le Figaro, as a tribute, presents the anthology of the most beautiful of singing tricks.



Saint-Germain-des-Près has lost its muse.

Juliette Gréco has just left us.

With her warm and sensual voice, for some seven decades, she brought the words of the most subtle poets of French song to life.

Perhaps, as she will have embodied the place and its history.

At the start of the 1950s existentialism found its spellbinding narrator.

On music often composed by Joseph Kosma, Serge Gainsbourg, Guy Béart, Gérard Jouannest ... she will run through the streets the verses of Jacques Prévert, Léo Ferré, Charles Trenet, Raymond Queneau, Jean-Max Rivière, Georges Brassens, Boris Vian, Jacques Brel ...
