Promenade à Paris
Returning with new songs and new stops 'in' the French capital!
Starring Daniella Barda (vocals), Ruby Boukabou (text and tap dance) and Chris Cody (piano)
This delightful cabaret is a musical stroll through the French capital in the heart of Sydney! Pianist Chris Cody, vocalist Daniella Barda and writer/tap dancer Ruby Boukabou met while performing in jazz clubs, theatres and cabarets in Paris. Their unique chemistry was woven over many late Parisian nights in jazz caves full of song, dance, debate and discovery. They created Promenade à Paris to serve Australian audiences this potent Parisian cocktail of music, tap dance and joie de vivre. After sell out shows in 2023 in both Sydney and Paris (with other shows) they're back at Claire's. Don't miss out!
Pianist and composer Chris Cody lived in Paris for 25 years where he worked with numerous jazz musicians and with artists such as Carla Bruni, Michel Jonasz, Belle du Berry (Paris Combo) and Marcel Azolla (Jacque Brel's accordionist). He also performed in French theatre productions such as Le Gros, la Vache et le Mainate, (Theatre du Champs- Élysée) Jazzie Josie B (Le Trianon, Montmartre) and Crochambule (Bastille). In Australia Chris has performed with The Paris Cats, Baby et Lulu and Excuse The French as well as leading his own jazz group (Chris Cody Coalition) at festivals and concerts. www.chriscody.com
Daniella Barda spent over 20 years in Paris and throughout Europe entertaining people with her beautiful melodies and touching tones. She flows smoothly between styles - from Broadway tunes to Big Band, modern jazz to Bossa Nova. A passionate performer with a great sense of humour, Daniella’s gigs are always a treat to attend whether they be in a piano bar in the Latin Quarter, a jazz cave in the Marais or at the Festival d’Avignon.
Ruby Boukabou is a writer, tap dancer and cabaret performer based between Sydney and Paris. She has spent the last couple of decades tapping up a storm in cabarets and concert venues around the world from Zurich to Paris, Melbourne to Mumbai, London to Cairo. She is also a travel reporter and the author of ‘The Art Lover’s Guide to Paris’, ‘The Architecture Lover’s Guide to Paris’ and ‘The Art Lover's Guide to Barcelona’.
Other cabarets Ruby has written and performed include 'Parisian Time Step', 'Parisian Rendez-Vous' and ‘Paris by Night’. www.rubytv.net
