Be prepared to meet pretty strange characters in the world of The Feather Door ! "La Maigrelette" (Skinny) who flies off whenever there's wind, "L'errant" (the wanderer), a 400-year-old ghost who frightens children at night, the mysterious Train 3 which never comes, "le citronnier" (the lemon tree) which soothes heartbreaks, the Great Lady, and also the final truth about Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa's smile !
Around the Feather Door are woven extraordinary tales in an astonishing and magical musical and visual universe. Unexpected instruments with weird shapes and sound, malicious musicians and a new piano who wishes to touch the ceiling. A door to stress the metamorphosis of the 2005 Red poppies Amélie to a new impressive singer, dancer, and tale-teller.
It took Amélie 8 months to write, compose and record the new songs. More than 12 musicians came around for the album to make it sound magical : flutes, harps, senza, glockenspiel, concertina, melodica and of course piano and guitars.
