Hello World! My name is Yanelle Dugar also known as UnBelievable Jones among other aliases, SHHHHH! And this is findingyanelle.com.
Last week while having tea with a good friend who was visiting from Paris, France, I suddenly realized how much I miss and love Paris.
A couple of years ago I decided to pack a bag or two and go to Paris…I had no direction and no itinerary but I did have my picture of Josephine Baker and Billie Holiday with me for inspiration and divine guidance I love you Madame Baker.
Upon my arrival, I linked up with a friend I had previously met in NYC and the following day, I ventured to Pompidou Center to begin my outdoor “residency” as a bona fide street performer.
During this time, I met so many wonderful musicians which enabled me the opportunity to perform at various hot spots throughout Paris and its surrounding areas and above all this, since I was performing regularly, my vocal ability improved by leaps and bounds!
Thanks to Paris, I got a wonderful gig in Mantova, Italy and I was able to venture to Berlin where I continued the artsy craft of “singing for my supper.”
So PARIS, this blog post is dedicated to you–I promise I will return – and when I do – it will be BIGGER & BETTER.
Below is an oldie but goody clip of a performance with Ivan Jelenkovic – ONLY IN PARIS -a great musician & my Parisian based busking partner
