On November 22, on the stage of Moscow International Performing Arts Center Elena et les garçons band will represent new concert program called "TIME-TRAVEL", which comprises international hit songs of different decades of 20th century in seven languages (Russian, French, English, Italian, Spanish, German and Georgian). The audience will see a real european level show combined with a travel into the musical past. The band will perform well-known songs together with rare musical finds, adding interesting stories about each of them. Dances staged by talented choreographers, new sound of classical songs, rich and deep sound of the orchestra - all this will make this concert very special and unique.
Elena et les garçons is a popular multilingual project which is already loved by fans and well-known as a unique band playing most popular retro pop hits from all over the world, in six languages and in new arrangemets. One of the main advantages of the band in that the frontwoman, Elena Lipaeva, perfectly understands what she sings about. She grew up and studied in Europe, so she speaks all of the languages she sings in. That fact, as well as the mix of different mentalities and cultures of countries she lived in, influences the repertoire and the unique sound of the band.
During the concert the audience will have a unique chance to travel through different decades of 20th century, from 40’s to 2000’s and through different countries from the US to Russia. The setlist includes the most popular songs of each decade as well as some forgotten «pearls», but they all have special characteristic sound and style of Elena et les garçons in common. New program will be performed with a chamber orchestra, and it will be truly uncommon, various and saturated. It is a musical story covering best hits of greatest performers from different countries and time periods, such as Marlene Dietrich, Edith Piaf, The Beatles, Muslim Magomaev, Adriano Celentano, Ricchi e Poveri, Julio Iglesias, music from Soviet movies, etc. Every audience member will surely find something interesting and touching only for himself.
For several years the band has been successfully conducting concert activity, performing on best stages in philharmonic and concert halls, taking part in international festival and giving live concerts on most important radio and TV channels all over the country. In 2016, Elena et les garçons had a solo concert at the State Kremlin Palace. In February 2018, the band released the first solo album of French hits «Stories...» recorded with symphonic orchestra , which was successfully presented at the Mayakovsky Moscow academic theater.
