Playlist: Female Vocalists
From New York, on this snowy day we are celebrating women around the world as part of the "Journée Internationale de la Femme" (International women's day).
We've assembled a playlist of the best female performers and vocalists from across the francophone world along with a few English-speaking artists. From to Edith Piaf, Nina Simone, and Juliette Gréco to Charlotte Gainsbourg, Yelle and Soko we tried to represent a sample of an array of music from the 40's into the present. Of course, these artists are just a small overview of the female artists who have shaped the history of popular music.
