Singers from New Zealand are rare on this French-oriented blog. Earlier this week we had Connan Mockasin, a few years back I featured Ladyhawke (who recorded one track in French). And now there’s Bic Runga. A gorgeous singer-songwriter with Maori, Chinese and Malaysian roots, who made four solo-albums. Belle was released last year, the title refers to the French tv-series Belle et Sebastien. She covered the theme-tune, also known as L’Oiseau, in French. Earlier, she covered Autumn Leaves, as you probably know a track of French origin too.
