Hugues Aufray

Whether the music is skiffle, folk or from Brazil’s Nordeste, Hugues Aufray knows how to make the sounds rhyme with travel, and his songs belong to everyone’s songbook. This set looks back on Aufray’s early years: from his ascent from cabaret and little Left Bank clubs prior to his decisive meeting with Eddie Barclay, all the way to his immense, eternal hit “Santiano”. Produced by Olivier Julien and Hugues Aufray himself, the set includes the artist’s own account of his career, which made him an icon from the beginning of the Sixties. Patrick FRÉMEAUX
