When I was studying French I started listening to copious amounts of French music to help me learn words and pronunciations. One of the artists that I found was ZAZ.
I immediately was charmed by her voice and her spunky vibe. Well..she is coming to the US so you can experience her for yourself.
Besides the East Coast, ZAZ will go to Cali, Chicago, and Toronto. She’s definitely worth checking out. If you are unfamiliar with her music, get on of her tunes on your playlist.
On Tour in North America
“ZAZ has a voice as warm and rich as the wines in the Bordeaux region, where she first began performing… she’s a performer full of insouciant charm.” – NPR
“It’s always an event when ZAZ chooses to grace us with new music; and as ever, the sultry introspective new single is full of surprises… [‘Qué vendrá’] is distinctly sensual.” – BlackBook
New York, NY – As part of her ongoing world tour, beloved French singer ZAZ today announced seven North American concert dates in October 2019.

ZAZ (born Isabelle Geffroy) has been compared to the likes of Edith Piaf, Yves Montand and Ella Fitzgerald and her signature voice is celebrated all over the world. Moving from Bordeaux to Paris as a teen, she set out to seize what would prove a unique destiny. Since the start of her career in 2010 with the seminal hit “Je veux,” ZAZ has won a multitude of awards, including French and German Grammys, and has sold in excess of four million records internationally, with Gold status or higher in twelve countries. She has performed over 500 shows across five continents, relentlessly proving that music transcends borders. An artist of global resonance, her last album, Paris, saw her collaborate with the likes of Quincy Jones, Charles Aznavour and Pablo Alborán. Quincy Jones has noted that ZAZ “has real blues roots in her voice that you’d swear came straight out of the ghetto!” In 2011, ZAZ joined theLes Enfoirés charity ensemble and has created the project Zazimut to develop and promote projects for a society more respectful of life in all its forms.
ZAZ recently released Effet Miroir [translation: Mirror Effect], a studio album comprised entirely of original songs. Combining elements of chanson, South American guitars, pop, salsa and rock, Effet Miroir is an album of hope that is testament to the beliefs of ZAZ, an internationally celebrated artist.
On Effet Miroir, ZAZ hopes listeners can find and recognize themselves: “To accept all our facets with their paradoxes is for me, a way to unite the polarities of our being,” ZAZ says. The album serves as an illustration of several faces and genres, just like the diversity of humanity that she had the opportunity to observe and appreciate for several years on the road, in concert or elsewhere.
