FRENCH FOLK SINGER CÉCILE HORTENSIA BLENDS CULTURES AND MUSIC STYLES IN HER BILINGUAL DEBUT ALBUM “PAPILLONS”
French singer Cécile Hortensia will release her debut album Papillons on Electric Lotus Label in October 2012. Cécile, who was born in France and now lives in Arizona, fuses her French roots with her adopted American culture in a bilingual, bi-cultural collection of songs. Each of the 12 tracks on Papillons explores a different side of the daring journey she took, seeking to find adventure in a new cultural perspective.
Papillons is a project that lies at the cultural intersection of her two homes of France and America. Written/sung in both languages, and spanning a time frame that includes both stages in her life, listeners will get a rare glimpse into the journey of her cross-cultural transition. The loneliness, the excitement and the freedom of this journey are brilliantly captured in each song.
