La Grande Sophie: Drawing Jam in London

A look ahead at what looks like a great event in London on May 31, with La Grande Sophie and performing live accompanied by artists creating improvised work.

The show - a Drawing Jam - is part of the BD & Comics passion festival organised at the Institut français in London.

La Grande Sophie has been releasing material since her debut album in 1997, La Grande Sophie s’agrandit

She's released six albums in total, the most recent La place du fantôme bagged her a Song/Variety Album of the Year Victoires de la Musique aWard in 2013.

She released in February an EP entitled Re(cord) , which featured versions of some the songs off the album re-recorded with a string quartet.

Meanhwile, the song Suzanne has been put forward as the third single from the album, following and ne m'oubliez pas and Sucrer les fraises.

A concert by La Grande Sophie would be worth a mention at the best of times, but an event like this looks like a unique opportunity to see something extraordinary.

She's a big enough artist in France to be playing at the Olympia on June 21 with the orchestra of Radio France as part of the Fête de la Musique.

The show on Friday May 31 takes place at the Institut français in London, 8 - 11pm.

BD and Comics Passion is on at the Institut français in London from 30 May to 2 June 2013, and it includes workshops, live drawing, book signings, concerts and movies.
