Clara Luciani: "I have always considered that being a woman was not an obstacle to my career, but a challenge."


The French musician was the 3rd guest of the Women In Motion talks at the Cannes Film Festival. She came back to her journey, and her commitments.

With his two albums




, she brings a breath of modernity to French music.

But Clara Luciani is also part of this generation which gives a feminist impetus, with its head held high and a frank smile on its lips, to French culture today: "I have always considered that being a woman was not an obstacle to my career, but a challenge.

The idea that it could have blocked me was intolerable to me”, she confided during the 3rd Women In Motion talk organized by the Kering group at the 75th Cannes Film Festival, May 21.

The French artist also returned to her beginnings, the clicks that pushed her to undertake a musical career, the place of women in the latter, and her visceral faith in sorority.

Build up little by little

It's a film that made Clara Luciani want to make music: Les Demoiselles de Rochefort by Jacques Demy, which one of her teachers, when she was a child, showed to her class.

"I remember going home and saying to my mother, 'I want to sing my life,'" she says.

The purchase of her first electric guitar, then a meeting with the group La Femme, which she then joined, were then decisive.

But without ever rushing things: “My personality would not have allowed me to experience a buzz well.

I'm too fragile for that.

Chaining different projects, more and more important, allowed me to find my place little by little.

La Grenade

, a feminist anthem now sung in many demonstrations: "I wrote this song after realizing that the technicians were always a little behind us, the musicians, to us explain how to do it, when we are perfectly capable of fending for ourselves.

As if it was an area that was not accessible to women.

To hold hands

Clara Luciani, for her part, strives to integrate as many women as possible into her professional entourage.

The one who wrote the song


in homage to hers, Ehla (also a musician) and all those we choose, never ceases to affirm how important it is for women to support each other: “We are often put in competition.

But I think we have understood it, and that we know, today, that it is important to hold hands.

The one who is committed to combating violence against women with La Maison des femmes wants to play an active role: "When you are handed a microphone and given time to speak, I think you have to serve it.

Especially since we give much less time to women, traditionally.

Another reason, if needed, not to hesitate to make your voice heard.
