Cat-Berro, Sonia

Born in Ch√Ęteauneuf-sur-Loire, France on 9 February 1973, Sonia Cat-Berro was raised to the music and jazz of Monk, Mingus, and Ella Fitzgerald at the bottle with the perfect disco of a music loving father. After a childhood punctuated by piano lessons, dance, theater and choir, Sonia Cat-Berro studied literature and history at the Sorbonne. Studies that she abandons in full partiels to return to the CIM, the oldest jazz schools in Paris and join the passion that animates and nourishes it really: jazz.

She meets the future fine flower of Parisian jazz, studies singing, piano, harmony and develops musical qualities recognized today by her peers, who see in her more than a singer we accompany: a true musician.

In 1999 she released her debut album 'A Singing Affair', an album of standards. It was followed by 'Keep In touch' in 2003: a second album that reflects the fruit of his musical collaboration with the saxophonist Gilles Barikosky, composer of original songs on which Sonia writes lyrics in English.

In 2011, she released her third album 'Toy Balloons', also composed mostly of originals.

His fourth album, 'Lonely Siren' was released in March 2018 and features a cover version of Babooshka in light jazz style.
