It’s a story of encounters. First of all, a singer, Rosemary Standley, and a show producer, Madamelune, who wanted to create a duo of voice and cello covers. Dom La Nena, a young cellist and singer with multiple talents, joined the singer of Moriarty.
Between the Franco-American and the Brazilian, the repertoires are exchanged and collide: classical, folk, traditional American or Argentinean; in Italian, English, Reunionese, Spanish, Arabic. These live miscellanies must absolutely be immortalized. Birds on a Wire is like a photo album that you leaf through and then the memories come flooding back.
Rosemary Standley escaped from Moriarty, the time to leaf through a whimsical and greedy songbook, from Claudio Monteverdi to Leonard Cohen, passing by Purcell, Fairouz, John Lennon or Tom Waits.
Dom La Nena, Dominique Pinto by name, cellist and singer, swings between Europe and Latin America. With Jane Birkin or in Jean Genet’s Le Condamné à mort with Jeanne Moreau and Étienne Daho, this young musician has amply demonstrated the extent of her gifts and her playing.
