Jane Birkin

Jane Birkin will mark the tenth anniversary since the EMI release of her LP ‘Arabesque’, the French chanteuse’s homage to her late ex-partner Serge Gainsbourg, via a live recital at London’s Barbican Hall on 9 Nov.

She’ll play the record – a set of Arabic rearrangements of classic Gainsbourgian hits – alongside violinist Djamel Benyelles, and Algerian artists Khaled and Cheb Mami. Details and tickets available here. Birkin also plays a sold out ‘Sings Gainsbourg’ show at London’s Cadogan Hall on 31 Jan.
