Charlotte Gainsbourg & Connan Mockasin

June 30, 2012

I was pleasantly surprised to find out one of my favorite singers would be performing in Madrid while I was there. I was even more surprised and elated to know super sexy Charlotte Gainsbourg would be accompanied by Connan Mockasin instead of him opening up for her. The show was at the Teatro Circo Price not far from the Reina Sofia museum which held a good couple thousand of people. The crowd seemed cheery despite being there at the same time as the Spain vs Portugal game – Spain won the game that night making everything that much more pleasant.

Anyway, besides being an awesome actress Charlotte also performs as a singer and plays several instruments. Many claim her success was due to her father’s fame (Serge Gainsbourg) but after seeing her perform live twice (last time at Coachella a few years back), I can assure you she’s an extremely talented songwriter and musician. The pairing with Connan Mockasin was perfect and she even supported his songs by playing drums and xylophone while he took center stage. Great show!
