The Barabli was a famous bilingual theatre in the post-war era, a cabaret that formed the cornerstone of nightlife in Alsace from 1946 to 1992. Noted for launching entertainer Jacques Martin, the club represented the region’s soul, famously characterized by that special Alsace mix of joy and suffering that lies between French and German cultures. The two architects of this striking legacy were Germain Muller and Mario Hirlé, the former a writer and lyricist, and also a man of the theatre and radio, while the second, a musician, worked notably with the Compagnons de la Chanson. This 3-album set, produced by Jean-Baptiste Mersiol and Ronald Hirlé, retraces the cabaret’s history and highlights the two artists’ collaboration in making the Barabli a legend.
