Ellen Birath

How does one form a band bringing together a 1970s California bassist, a jazz manouche guitarist, a reggae drummer, and a Parisian erudite saxophonist? It’s a small miracle, brought to you by young Swedish singer and composer Ellen Birath, the soul of this improbable band that formed in 2013 for a series of live concerts. Nowadays the band is one of the protagonists of Parisian nights:  their soul, R&B, swing, ska, and New-Orleans tunes are a synonym of dance and entertainment. Ellen Birath will also exhibit in a trio in the first few days and on the last evening of the festival.

From: Sweden, France
Style: Vocal jazz, R&B, New Orleans
