Camille, the biggest name in the world of French music and one of the finest performers around is coming to Slovenia. As the Cankarjev dom – Cultural and Congress Centre (CD) notes: »A decade of efforts has finally paid off.« Having Camille to perform in the CD’s Gallus Hall is a marvelous victory for the largest cultural and congress centre in Slovenia that is annually visited by half a million people. Namely, Camille earned a stellar reputation for her live work – her presentations of the latest (and the fifth) album OUĎ have been sold out from Paris to London and Sydney and all the way to chapels in the Le Beaujolais region.

Camille will perform songs from her new (and the fifth) album OUĎ, including some of the best compositions from her previous four releases. The new studio album is an abundance of folk, hymns, ballads, pop, lullabies and breathtaking a cappella (sung in French and English). While she set out to write politically charged songs inspired by drum-driven French traditional dances, which reflect upon the country’s recent, tragic events, she was equally led to something peaceful, vowel-oriented and vibrational in her exploration of sound.

True to her reputation of an energetic performer she will offer a bold and unique musical happening. Camille, known also for her collaboration with Nouvelle Vague, is nothing less than internationally celebrated new French chanson phenomenon and futuristic pop star whose concerts are an extraordinary experience signed with barefoot dance.

Ljubljana’s Cankarjev dom, an arts and convention centre with a distinguished artistic tradition, offers a unique mixture  of arts and cultural events to its congress and business guests. This relation between arts/culture and meetings industry results in fact that diverse meetings, ranging from business to scientific, are all the more inspirational in a venue that hosts rich programme of artistic venues. Camille’s performance will be another addition to the CD’s exceptionality among Slovenian congress institutions; despite having a history of over forty years, through the selection of cultural programmes the CD is successful at keeping its youthful vigour and vitality.
