Show DescriptionThe 24-year-old chanteuse has quickly won the hearts of fans all across Europe and Japan with her majestic indie pop-folk songs.
Maïa Vidal uses violins, accordion, guitar, percussion, toy instruments and her distinctive, strong and moving voice to compose and arrange her own unique music. She blends modern, confident songwriting with shades of old world melodies, and takes us on a journey that is at once sweet and painfully honest, yet never loses its sense of wonderment.
