Myriam Phiro
Piaf at 100: the solo Sparrow

Myriam Phiro guides you through the decadent world of Edith Piaf using her timeless songs to retell the life of this iconic performer who’ve inspired her so much in becoming an artist. Accompanied by her Jazz trio, she recreates the brothels, circuses and nightclubs that created the great Piaf we all know. The performance lasts 60-70 minutes.

2015 marked Edith Piaf’s centennial. ‘La Môme Piaf’, as she was nicknamed, introduced America to the world of ‘Chanson Réaliste’. Her songbook has become classic and still engages audiences worldwide. However, her early life is shrouded in mystery – daughter of a circus performer, childhood in a brothel, blind for years and ‘miraculously’ cured by a pilgrimage St. Therese – these stories and more are brought to life with music, dance and circus performance in Ms. Phiro's exciting cabaret show.


Myriam Phiro is a NYC-based internationally-recognized French-Canadian actress, jazz singer, dancer and cabaret chanteuse who has performed on stages and in theaters worldwide.

Her recent performances include sold-out concerts at world-famous the Rainbow Room, 54 Below, the Iridium Jazz club, BB King’s, & Metropolitan Room in NYC as well as at Montreal’s International Jazz Festival & Montreux Jazz Festival. Her performing endeavors brought her to collaborate and share the stage with renowned artists such as Harry Connick Jr, Janis Siegel, Nicki Parrott, Marilyn Maye, Frank Vignola and Vince Giordano.

Although she is touring on a regular basis, she can be seen around NYC fronting Mariposa ~ an all-female international band on a mission to social justice through music, in her own cabaret show "Piaf at 100: the solo Sparrow" and entertaining the likes of avid Lindy Hopers as the bandleader of the "Phirocious Swing Orchestra".

“Myriam Phiro’s voice translates the tones of an era and the emotions that go with it. With the chosen songs, she embodies the perfect re-enactment of a mix between Edith Piaf and Marilyn Monroe; deep, powerful, fun and sexy all at once.”
