Who is Singrid Campion?
Born into a family of musicians, Singrid Campion is the daughter of the famous showman, Marcel Campion, baptized “the king of the showmen”, creator of the Fête des Tuileries, the Fête à Neuneu and of course the current Foire du Trône. It was in a caravan that the singer was born in the Jardin des Tuileries (75001) on July 27, 1976. She grew up with her brothers (the eldest deceased and the youngest evangelist) and her cousins, protected from animals , carousels, a farm and also wild animals.
Music and partying run through his veins, thanks to street circus grandparents. Singrid found her inspiration in gypsy jazz which is part of her upbringing and her culture. Author, composer and self-producer, she is also a businesswoman and a Committed mother who defends the values of the fairground world, while perpetuating its values. For this, she created “Gypsing”, an original and unique, mixing the sounds of the Gypsy with the “latino gypsy” and the French variety. She also launched “Zen Shop”, a brand of cosmetics based on CBD, (hemp), an online store has existed since the beginning of 2022 as well as a cd.
Singrid also created her own association linked to the “HDC Niglo” motorcycle club which has existed for 30 years, in which she paraded with her father. She also recustomized the logo, a little hedgehog (Niglo meaning hedgehog in gypsy language). In her clip “Free your life”, we see her marching among bikers.
Next, Alison’s Tales will be published. It is a series of stories for children told by Lauryne from Loft Story 2, also from the fairground world. A little lullaby will be sung by Singrid.
