The Sparrows of Paris - Our Story

The Sparrows of Paris got together in 2011 after Parisian singer Carolyn Saint-Pé was asked to sing La Java Bleue, a vintage java, in a short film.

Since then, The Sparrows of Paris have performed in the UK, France and Belgium both in festivals and fêtes, restaurants, cinemas, private and corporate parties, exhibitions and art exhibition openings playing as a quartet, trio and duo.
