LP with 3 postcards.

Mami Chan, a musician of Japanese origin living in France
for more than 25 years passed away in January 2020, at 56
years of age.
She has left many friends (musicians) who pay a heartfelt
tribute with this << Jolis Choses >>, album conceptualized
by Christophe Petchanatz, produced by InPolySons and coordinated
by Emiko Ota with the help of Julien Omeyer.
Such a "papillon" (butterfly), Mami spread her energy and
joy through the different formations that appealed to the
elder and younger public alike: Mami Chan Band (Rock, ponk,
like she used to say), Juicy Panic and GangPol und Mit (electro-pop
sweet dynamic with certain projects for children such as Carton
Park), and toy music (Ponpoko). Mami Chan has notably collaborated many
times with Dragibus: she is present on the album tutti frutti on the keyboard,
in 2005 and 2006, she toured with in Eastern Europe with Dragibus in particular
in Hungary as “Mushroom Mami”. Bright singer, she accompanied the iconoclast
Philippe Katerine for one song.
Fine pianist, she loved the fun and false simplicity of Erik
This << Jolis Choses >> (sic) includes unreleased tracks
by Mami Chan Band, Juicy Panic, Mami Chan solo and various
covers of music and songs from the various universes of Mami
Chan, with most of her musician friends, french, english and
japanese: Gangpol und Mit, Dragibus, Haco, Echo-U-Nite, Emiko
& KiriSute Gomen, Klimperei, Madame Patate, the members of
Mami Chan Band...
A lighthearted tribute, in a pretty pink, that fills us with
joy and nostalgia, for the 11th of July, Mami Chan's birthday.
