Madame Andree was the nom de guerre of New Zealand born resistance fighter Nancy Wake who became no 1 on the Gestapos most wanted list in occupied France, during WW2. The music is written and performed by the Australian group Madame Andree as a tribute, and is currently being performed live in a neo-noir cabaret style. The songs are in English and French, and detail events such as her heroic 400 kilometre bike ride through occupied France (Velo d'Helene), and her personal tragedies, as in (Neige blanche) in which while escaping to England, from high up in the Pyrenees, she predicts the fate of her husband who would soon to be captured and tortured by the Gestapo.
Madame Andree will continue to perform and release material from the show 'White mouse'
Music written and produced by Martin Elepans. Vocals Etoile Marley. Lyrics Martin Elepans and Etoile Marley.
