Title:              A Tribute to Jacques Brel
Performers: Live Performance.
During this hour or so, a surprise friend of Karaz w Laimoon will be playing guitar and singing some of the famous and less famous songs of Jacques Brel.

Jacques Brel was born in Belgium in 1929. At 24, he came to Paris and lived in France. He stopped performing live at the age of 37. He spent the last 10 years of his life in semi-retirement, flying his small plane and sailing around on his yacht with his last mistress, Maddly Bamy. He died in 1978 from lung cancer at the age of 50. He is buried on one of the Marquesas Islands in Polynesia, just across from the grave of painter Paul Gauguin.
