Discover forbidden songs because they disturbed the powers in place. Who said that music and art are only there to entertain us? Did you know that many songs were banned at the time because they disturbed the powers in place. Between musette and swing, Chloé and Baptiste Bieri make us discover songs that, each in their own way, were sources of citizen awareness, a cry of heart to rally to causes, and strug- gles for a more just society. Artists engaged both on stage and in life, they also make us dis- cover two of their compositions with inspiring texts, which are not yet banned, but do we ever know!
Chloe and Baptiste Bieri are versatile artists. In turn, actors, songwriters and performers, they have also created the Bleu Amarante group, which adds their swing sound on humanist songs. Baptiste lives in an artistic and ecological cooperative, always curious to try innovations useful for society, such as artisanal lacto-fermentation that allows to keep vegetables in a gentle way, without water or electricity. He co-created the Salad Assoc, which gives people tools for a happy transition. Chloé is a singer, performer, author and composer from Lausanne, who has just finish her Master’s studies in the field of musical theater and composition at the High School of Arts in Bern. She works and dedicates herself as much to the song of author, to pop music, to swing, as to the creation of musical piece in the field of experimental music and contemporary music. They are brother and sister, engaged together for a better world.
