Brazilian singer Luciana Mello recorded a French version of Serge Gainsbourg’s latinized ode to coffee-coloured beauties Couleur Café on her 6th album (called 6 Solo). In the video above you don’t see French singer Corneille, but he’s on the album version. Luciana comes from a musical family, her dad’s Brazilian funk pioneer Jair Rodrigues, her brother Jair Oliviera is a music producer. Not sure if Luciana recorded in French before, but this sure’s convincing.

    Hey!
    I’m a huge fan of hers, and this is the firt time she recorded a song in French.
    Her voice is amazing and the song is one of my favourites in the album. She’s an amazing artist and I sure recommend her CDs and concerts to everyone!
