Along the way you will bump into Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel and Charles Aznavour, but also Maurice Chevalier, Leo Ferré and Barbara. It is possible to get hopelessly lost in the stories behind the French chanson, but don't worry: after all, a journey is not about the final destination,but about the road there.

    

The first time Tess van der Zwet heard Jacques Brel, lightning struck. Tess and her band are now hundreds of shows further, they have released a lovingly received EP and Tess was in Paradiso to sing their 2019 summer hit 'Mon Paris'. They do so with an irresistible joie de vivre and the balls to play the uncastrated version of chansons: it can be modest and beautiful, but it can also be ugly, grotesque. And time and again the primal forces of the chanson appear to possess a throat grabbing magnetism: singing along, tears in the eyes and blissful heads across the full width. Tess Merlot on stage is an emotional rollercoaster that always ends in an exuberant party, with all masks off.

the band:
Tess van der Zwet – vocals
Leon Sibum – guitar
Tim Kerssies – accordion/melodica
Boris Egberts – double bass
Michel Buijsse – percussion/drums
