Jane Birkin

Jane Birkin to preform in Tel Aviv, Ramallah

Birkin, who was married to Serge Gainsbourg, will sing famous French writer's best repertoire at Reading 3 club in Tel Aviv January 13 and 14

British singer Jane Birkin is slated to come to the region for two concerts in Tel Aviv and two concerts in Ramallah.


Birkin, who was married to Serge Gainsbourg, will perform at the Reading 3 club in Tel Aviv on January 13 and 14. Tickets will be sold for NIS 279. The dates for her Ramallah gigs have yet to be finalized.


In an intimate show, Birkin will mark 40 years of her husband's provocative album "Histoire de Melody Nelson" – of which she was part of - and 20 years since his passing. Birkin will also perform his best repertoire.



The relationship between Gainsbourg and Birkin began on the set of the movie "Slogan". The two fell in love and were considered one of the most famous couples in France during the 1960s. In 1969 they came out with the hit single "Je T'aime, Moi Non Plus", which stirred uproar in France because of Birkin's sexual moans that were included in it.


Two years later, their daughter Charlotte Gainsbourg was born, who later became a famous actress in her own merit. Over the years, Gainsbourg penned many songs for Birkin, which have become an inseparable part of French culture.


In the 1980s, after the two had separated, Birkin was forced to fight her "Lolita who drags along behind Gainsbourg" image, and to prove herself as an actress and singer.


Despite the breakup, Gainsbourg continued writing songs for her. In the beginning of the 1980s, the two created a joint record, "Baby Alone In Babylon", which was highly successful.
