For Zaho de Sagazan, the weather is always beautiful above the clouds

After the Olympia and the Zénith in Paris, Zaho de Sagazan rediscovers the intimacy of small rooms. Monday evening, in a packed Parisian club, the 24-year-old singer delivered a show lasting around forty minutes in front of 450 shows who won a place thanks to a competition launched on social networks by Europe 2. The occasion for Zaho de Sagazan to celebrate the anniversary of his first album, La Symphonie des Éclairs, released at the end of March 2023. But also and above all the platinum disc, i.e. 100,000 sales, of it, exactly one year after its release.

The Zénith tour began at the beginning of March in Nantes, not far from Saint-Nazaire, the city where it originated. This was followed by a Parisian Zénith, his first, on March 13, in front of nearly 7,000 spectators. The 24-year-old singer thought she didn't like big rooms, for fear of "losing the intimacy of smaller ones." “In the end not at all, there was so much energy, it was great,” she remembers. I love all concerts! And then even when it’s sitting down, where everyone is pissing each other off, there’s always something to find, a smile or a look.” But a Zaho de Sagazan concert where people are bored doesn't exist. Whatever the room or the audience, the singer knows how to make them dance. On Monday, the public was on fire, ready to welcome the phenomenon of the year, quadrupled by the Victoires de la Musique in February.

The concert may well be held at Sub Pigalle, but it has the feel of last month's Zénith. The first rows fill up very quickly, so much so that it quickly becomes impossible to move around. The meeting was set for 7:30 p.m., time for fans to jostle at the bar before the start of the first game, an hour later. As at the Zénith in Paris, it is the young Solann who kicks off with her melodious voice. The 24-year-old singer makes her entrance at 9 p.m., dressed in her usual black cycling jacket, to the applause of the crowd. The show begins with his title Aspiration, which tells, with sobriety and efficiency, his ten years of addiction to cannabis. Between two pieces, she takes the floor to explain the meaning behind each song and takes the opportunity to dedicate her Symphony of Lightning, a title affirming that “it is always beautiful above the clouds”, “to all the little storms in the room », those who, like her, have difficulty controlling their emotions.

And then, “no more ditties”, as she puts it so well, make way for dance and electro. Neither one nor two, Zaho de Sagazan becomes a stage beast again and transforms Sub Pigalle into a real nightclub, encouraging his fans to dance and “do all the moves in the world as if no one is watching you”. Young and old do so without complaining, waving their arms in all directions. The concert ends. Without her stroll through the audience performing her cover of La vie est belle, a title by Brigitte Fontaine that she performs at the end of each concert. Many fans, dressed in a t-shirt bearing the singer's image, waited for long minutes in the hope of meeting her.

“It was great tonight, people were really into it!” says Zaho de Sagazan after finishing signing posters. An intimate concert before taking the plane to Canada where she will give two shows, on April 19 in Montreal and April 20 in Quebec. But after all this excitement, one question remains, is it still sunny above the clouds? “It turns out, it’s completely false!”, jokes Zaho de Sagazan. I assumed that it was a proven fact, since above the clouds there are no more, but perhaps I should have asked a meteorologist!” Whether it's true or not, the lyrics were able to convince, allowing its author to win, among others, the Victory for original song of the year.
