French Classical Singer. Born in Casablanca to Jewish family of Italian origin, she became well known in the early 1960s at the Festival of the Rose d' Or in the Antibes; recorded "Cent mille chansons" ("A Hundred Thousand Songs") in 1962. In 1967, participated in one of the more important classic festivals, the Festival of Sofía, Bulgaria.
