Havana meets Paris: Raquel Bitton on Africa Mix

Mar 27, 2013

Raquel Bitton, French songstress, producer and renowned interpreter of songs by Edith Piaf has released a new CD Rhythm of the Heart.  On her latest production, Bitton sings the classic songs of Tino Rossi, the romantic tenor singer of the French Cabaret era of the 1930s accompanied by an incredible cast of Latin musicians in the Bay Area.  And she'll be Emmanuel Nado's guest on Africa Mix.  Thursday at 9pm.

Born in Marrakesh, Morocco, Raquel Bitton has been hailed as one of the foremost interpreters of French jazz music in America today.  She has performed her hit show "Raquel Bitton sings Edith Piaf: Her story, Her Songs" to sold out performances at Carnegie Hall and many other célèbre venues.  As a resident of San Francisco Bay Area, we are proud to have her in our music community.
