Inspired by the romance of a moonlit serenade, Nikki Nouveau explores the timeless allure of the Paris in her enchanting musical biography. Meet the fascinating ladies of Paris, from Colette to Marie Antoinette, Coco Chanel to Napoleon’s Josephine, who created an unequalled society of feminine charm, wit, beauty, art, sexuality and love.
Be seduced and inspired as Nouveau and her band bring to life the bygone era of French jazz and intimate cabaret from the 1940s, 50s and 60s. With delicate vocals and classical overtones, Nikki presents an uplifting musical escapade singing a rich repertoire from artists such as Josephine Baker, Dalida, Edith Piaf and Brigitte Bardot, along with her own original compositions and featuring piano-keyboard by John Thorn, violin by Nigel MacLean, and accordion by Steve Grant.
With scores of performances around Australia and internationally, Nikki has gained a reputation of producing, directing and starring in high quality entertainment presented as sold-out shows to captivated audiences and rave reviews.
