CALL ME CHAOS
Floh lives on the fringes, plays mainly on the tarmac itself and confronts reality head-on. For her, song is a cry, and singing is to fight. Part of the pure lineage of realist chanson, her songs are like a bandage for our souls, shaken by the dominant chaos. Like the songs of Edith Piaf, she anchors her lyrics in the gloominess of the day-to-day, the tensions of our society and the conflicts of the world.

Length: '38; format: FullHD colour; sound: stereo
