Baby & Lulu

Baby & Lulu

A truly magnetic musical partnership which has been seducing audiences since their debut release, much loved artistes Abby Dobson – ‘Baby’ (Leonardo’s Bride) and Lara Goodridge – ‘Lulu’ (FourPlay) recorded a second selection of classic and contemporary chansons, as well as, for the first time, a number of their own original compositions written in French. Baby et Lulu have enjoyed a new found poetic freedom in writing in the language they both love so much.

What does France and French culture mean to Baby et Lulu?

Lulu says: “I’ve been infatuated with France for as long as I can remember. It was at university that I discovered some of the great writers, poets and thinkers of France, including Derrida, Sartre, de Beauvoir, de Maupassant, Prévert, to name but a few. There’s also the French music, cuisine, and cinema which continue to enthrall me”.

Baby says: “For me, my love of French music followed my love of French language, food and sensuality. Parisian aesthetics are so captivating, even the lighting from people’s living room windows seems sublimely art directed! I still love to wander around Paris on a Sunday; the place is so quiet! I was able to explore these aspects of myself without inhibition when I lived there as a young woman, and making music with Baby et Lulu affords me the same avenue of exploration and succour.”

Don’t miss out on your own Baby et Lulu expérience fantastique!
