Smiling Blues

Located in Le Mans, Sylvain Couedel and Valérie Arethuse already have a solid experience within groups inspired by gospel, jazz, soul, folk and blues!

 The blues, born at the turn of the 20th century, has a clear influence on contemporary music and inspires today’s musicians internationally. “Smiling Blues” is a musical journey starting from the roots of the blues to go to the music of today, from Son House to Robert Johnson, from Etta James to Nina Simone to Prince…

An invitation to share “live” songs by legendary artists who were able, thanks to the blues, to freely express their sometimes harsh lives made up of failures and victories.

Valérie Arethuse – voice, percussion
