Biography

French singer of Franco-Italian origin, who acted in radio, cinema and television between 1956 and 1981.

She was compared to Édith Piaf and was believed to be her successor when she died in 1963 but Colombo was too intellectual for the taste of the general public.

Colombo was a big interpreter of her husband, the composer Maurice Fanon and of Serge Gainsbourg, Jacques Brel, Georges Brassens, Kurt Weill, Hanns Eisler and others.

In the 1960s she acted in productions by Roger Planchon of Bertolt Brecht's works.

Colombo died of cancer on 16 April 1986, aged 51.
