Nouvelle Vague (French bossa nova cover band)

~ Group


Nouvelle Vague is a French cover band led by musicians Marc Collin and Olivier Libaux. Their name means "new wave" in French. This refers simultaneously to their "Frenchness" and "artiness" (the '60s new wave of the French cinema cult), the source of their songs (all covers of punk rock, post-punk, and new wave songs), and their use of '60s bossa nova-style arrangements.

Members, former members and contributors include many French artists who are now very well known on their own and considered as part of what is now called the "Renouveau de la chanson Française" (Nouvelle Chanson): Camille, Phoebe Killdeer, Mélanie Pain, Marina Céleste, Nadeah Miranda and Gerald Toto. Mareva Galanter joined the roster of vocalists in 2010.
