Katharine Mehrling
Piaf au Bar
One of the most cel­eb­rated star sing­ers of Ber­lin, Kath­ar­ine Mehrling pays hom­mage to the great Edit Piaf. The audi­ence is left mes­mer­ized im­me­di­ately after just one bar of Kath­ar­ine Mehrlings singing due to her power­ful voice that strik­ingly re­sembles the dark-hued ori­gin­al of Piaf.
In her own fash­ion she in­ter­prets the clas­sic French song rep­er­toire and cel­eb­rates the Chan­sons with an ex­uber­ant amount of mel­an­choly, only to tear it down with non­chal­ant self-mock­ery the very next mo­ment.
An air of nos­tal­gia, joie de vivre and a lot of Jazz waft through Ber­lin’s fam­ous Spiegel­tent with Kath­ar­ine Mehrling & Band in the BAR JEDER VER­NUN­FT.
