K

Kaas, Patricia

b. 1967, Forbach, Lorraine

Singer

A remarkably mature blues singer for someone of her age, Patricia Kaas is one of the rising stars of the world of French popular music. Already a very successful stage performer (in France and abroad), whose successes include Mademoiselle chante le blues (The Young Lady Sings the Blues) and I Wanna be Loved by You, Kaas has already been drawn to Hollywood and to a possible film career.

Kacel, Karim

b. 1959, Paris

Singer

The pure product of beur culture, Kacel has created a singular synthesis of all the musical styles he has exposed himself to: jazz, classical, rock, funk and soul. Classified at first as the voice of the suburbs (banlieue), as in his well-known song, Banlieues on his 1984 album, Gens qui rient, gens qui pleurent (Laughing People, Crying People), this charismatic performer is becoming a legend in the French pop landscape.

GÉRARD POULET

Kalisky, René

b. 1936, Brussels;

d. 1981, Brussels

Playwright

Kalisky was a Belgian writer of structured texts during the 1970s, when the mood was generally against text-based theatre and towards collective creation. These include Skandalon, La Passion selon Pier Paolo Pasolini (Passion According to Pier Paolo Pasolini), and Dave au bord de mer (Dave at the Seaside), directed by Vitez in 1979.
