Henri Salvador


What can be said about Henri Salvador that hasn’t already been said?
In a nutshell, he was a unique talent as a songwriter, singer, guitarist, and performer.
His career spanned over seven decades, covering a wide pallet of music including jazz, cabaret, novelty, and early rock n’ roll. In fact it was Salvador who first introduced rock n’ roll to France. Born in French Guiana, Salvador moved to Paris at age twelve and began his performance career by age sixteen. His popularity was huge in Europe, but he remained a well kept secret to the American audience for most of his life. I discovered his music purely by accident and was hooked immediately. Salvador was 90 years when he died in 2008.
