Polish singer and actress Aldona Nowowiejska lives à Paris and amalgamates folklore sounds from Eastern Europe with French flourish. The result is a peculiar, at times brill mix you won’t hear too often on pop radio. Her fourth album, Sonnet, features one French language song only – A Murmur, a breathless, tenderly boisterous vignette that seems to reflect the mood of the red-skirted girl on the cover and sounds like a less affected Camille exchanging butterfly kisses with Django’s grand grandson. Don’t miss the last whisper.
