10PM - CATHERINE RINGER SINGS SONGS BY RITA MITSOUKO
Rita Mitsouko were the most atypical duo on the French rock scene.
Founded in 1979 by Catherine Ringer and Fred Chichin, the band was a breath of fresh air.
Mixing humour with seriousness, absurdity and mockery, open to all musical influences, they made it through the years with great ease. Marcia Baila, their Latin rock anthem, made this duo a popular figure in the eyes of the public.
Who has never hummed their songs? Le Petit Train, Andy, C’est Comme Ça, Les Histoires d’A: these are essential hits that we can all sing together during this event at the Carcassonne Festival!
