France: La Zarra goes to Liverpool

La Zarra will represent France in the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest in Liverpool. That is what French Television announced today. “She combines the class and style of Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe, with the sense of tragedy of Edith Piaf, the post-modern intoxication of Lady Gaga, the naked frankness of Barbara, and the fragility of Dalida.”, states the French delegation.

La Zarra herself says: “I am very proud to have the chance to perform my song in front of millions of viewers around the world. I am a great admirer of the most beautiful French voices such as Edith Piaf, Barbara, Dalida, but also Céline Dion, and I am so excited to make all Europeans discover my song which I hope will become theirs. I am very honoured to represent France at Eurovision, the most iconic song contest in the world.”

On her instagram, the singer says: “D-Day has arrived! I am happy to finally be able to announce that I will wear the colors of France at Eurovision! When I was little my mother rocked me with “L’oiseau et l’enfant” by Marie Myriam… who would have thought that today it was my turn to sing for this mythical competition.

Then who is La Zarra? Her real name is Fatima Zahra Hafdi. She is Canadian-Moroccan. She grew up near the city of Longueuil. In 2016, La Zarra rose to fame through an artistic collaboration with Niro on the title “Printemps blanc”. At the NRJ Music Awards 2021, she was nominated for the French-speaking revelation of the year. She scored hits with “Tu t’en iras” (2021) and “Sans moi” (2022).
