Emmanuelle Parrenin

Iconic figure of the French folk scene, Emmanuelle Parrenin has never stopped polishing her soul. A voice from the depths of time, some babblings that belong only to her, and the precious gift of making the hurdy-gurdy speak, this medieval ancestor of the drone.


Iconic figure of the French folk scene, on its most experimental side, the singer and musician Emmanuelle Parrenin owes this status in particular to her splendid first solo LP, Maison rose (1977), object of a fervent cult. After a long eclipse, she has been back on the musical circuit for the last ten years, having made a brilliant comeback with the album Maison cube (2011).
