Nights of Edith Piaf by The Kitchen Sisters
She rose every day at dusk and sang, rehearsed, performed, ate and drank until dawn, then slept all day and began to create and unravel again as the sun went down. Nearly every song Piaf sang was a moment of her life from the streets of Paris. She would tell her composer and musician lovers a story, or describe a feeling or show them a gesture. And they would put music and words to her pain and passion, giving her back her own musical autobiography. We'll hear from some of France's greatest musicians and composers recall their nights with the "the Little Sparrow."
