The history of the song Frou-Frou comes from far, nothing less than from 1889 when Henri Chatau wrote and premiered it in a café-concert at Paris. Since then, both the title and the lyrics have changed according to circumstances until to be fixed as Frou-Frou in the 1920s. Today is the music par excellence to define the Paris of the Belle Epoque of the beginning of the 20th century. Then, it is not estrange at all that one of the most excellent French voices of “les varietés”, Line Renaud, included it in her repertory especially after the international success of the German film “Frou-Frou” (Augusto Gennina, 1955).
