Sonia Malkine

Sonia Malkine, 1923-2014

French folk singer Sonia Malkine possessed a delicate and captivating vocal approach, which she combined with a varied repertoire of music. Her songs included ancient Celtic ballads, lullabies, popular music, hymns, sailors’ songs, and French folk pieces—some centuries old, passed to her by her mother in the oral tradition when Sonia was a child. She appeared on Pete Seeger’s television program, shared the stage with Jacque Brel, and delighted the audience at Carnegie Hall.
