Doors open: 20:00

Tour name: Arabesque

Serge Gainsbourg’s classic songs are reinterpreted by the iconic chanteuse with an Arabic music flavour, combined with shades of Andalusia as well as a touch of the Orient.

In the tenth anniversary of the album release on EMI and her sold-out Barbican performance, Jane Birkin’s Arabesque remains one of the bravest and most successful reinventions of the legendary French singer-songwriter’s oeuvre.

Jane is joined on this journey into Maghreb rhythms and Eastern harmonies by Djamel Benyelles, virtuoso violinist and collaborator with Chebs Khaled and Mami, and his band Djam & Fam.

Jane says, ‘The poets do not die if one carries their words.’
