The inimitable Enrico Macias celebrates his 60th career with a box set illustrated by Joann Sfar. 4 thematic CDs and vinyls that gather some of the singer's most beautiful songs.

He is one of the most respected singers: Enrico Macias celebrates his 60th career with “From Music to Music”, a beautiful box set that includes 4 CDs, also available on vinyl, themed but also illustrated by Joann Sfar. “I discovered Joanna Sfar with “Le chat du Rabbin”, a book I loved and when he was making a movie, he asked me to perform the music written by Olivier Daviaud. From there we became friends. He is an exceptional boy.”

4 themes bring together some of his most beautiful songs: “Love”, “Family”, “Fun” and “Between East and West”. “It's difficult to choose the titles because we're afraid of forgetting some that the public likes, but I'm not alone, there's my son Jean-Claude and people from the record company who helped. I think we made a good summary.” Studio sessions, live performances, but also duets like Kendji Girac or Khaled accompany the greatest classics from Constantine.

He also celebrates his birthday on stage. “The stage is important to me. Because we're live, we don't start over if we've made a mistake or something, there's really quick communication with the audience. We are less spontaneous in the studio.”

The tour continues in April with 2 dates in Olympia, May 18th and 19th, a very important venue in Eyes of Enrico Macias. “The decoration will be an oriental living room, day and night. A night to party. And I would keep my authenticity, I would not be in the making”.

With Emilie Mazoyer, Enrico Macias travels through 60 years of memories and songs in decibels.
