Where does the chanson originate? What was Édith Piaf’s life like and where does Barbara Pravi get the inspiration for her chansons?

Matthijs van Nieuwkerk and Rob Kemps introduce viewers to the music of Édith Piaf, Jacques Brel, Serge Gainsbourg and Charles Aznavour, among others. Strolling through the streets of Paris, Rob and Matthijs team up to find the stories behind the “chanson” and as they explore, we see the city through their eyes. You couldn’t wish for better guides, both are devoted to the French capital.

CHANSONS! is a co-production of BNNVARA and MediaLane.
