EDITH LEFEL - "Mon ange" (2002)

One of the most elegant women ever lived. Although she passed away in 2003 at the age of 39, today she's still considered as the finest artist of "Zouk-Love" music derived from French Antilles.

Born in French Guyana, at 3 she moved to Martinique and at 14 she finally moved to Paris France. She recorded 5 wonderful studio albums and she collaborated with many other notable Caribbean artists such as Malavoi.

The track I've chosen, is taken from her last album entitled "Si seulement" recorded in 2002 and released on Creon Music. Soulful Caribbean finesse at its best.

Elegant to say the least Nicolas! An instant chill out atmosphere... Brilliant! Too bad she's gone. But always: "Elle seulement"!!!

I have always admired Edith's contribution to the Caribbean music. I'm really glad you chose to include her on your Blog.
