Her first album, La Symphonie des éclairs, was one of the most unexpected triumphs of 2023. Zaho de Sagazan returns to shake up Rock en Seine two years after her first notable appearance. And what an incredible journey it’s been in such a short space of time! This native of Saint-Nazaire already sells out arenas showing a maturity beyond her years – she celebrates her 24th birthday at the end of 2023. Her clear diction and impeccable phrasing (think Barbara or Brel) are transcended by the originality of her ideas and her music, where echoes of krautrock, dark electro and the shadowy parts of French chanson hold forth. It’s in this paradoxical interstice, between experimental and classical, that this singer-songwriter finds her voice.
