One of the articles in our monthly Paris Insights newsletter is called Paris, Past and Present. Here, we provide a brief report on some aspect of Paris history, culture, and contemporary life that we find particularly interesting.
In this month’s Paris, Past and Present, we feature Federico Santalla, a singer who performed at Le Lapin Agile for thirty years. One of his favorite songs that he sang there is a poem written by humorist and comedian Pierre Dac that Federico set to music. Called “Rien,” the poem is a nonsense song about the state of nothingness, which Federico performed with gestures and piano accompaniment.
