Today we’re premiering funky lady/one-woman band Estère’s Live performance of her track ‘L’oiseau dans l’etoile’, performed with her beloved Music Production Controller/MPC called Lola. It was recorded in her home country New Zealand for the Aston Rd Sessions.
The title of the song means ‘the bird up in the stars’. Estère tells us: “ ‘L’oiseau dans l’etoile’ was my first endeavor to write in my father’s language – french! It actually came from a jam I was having with two friends, suddenly I was singing this line in French – “L’oiseau dans l’etoile voler voler voler” I really liked it so decided to work on a beat for it with Lola- es voila!”
Her camp says: “The song is about the idea of there being a benevolent spirit (in the form of a bird) out there who is able to rectify a lot of what is wrong with the world and bring back equilibrium to the environment. Estère is currently touring in the UK and Europe before returning to New Zealand to play a hearty series of summer festivals and will release her album in Europe with new Parisian tastemaker label Prospect early 2015.”
If you’re in Paris, catch her December 4th at Cafe de La Danse.
