Bonjour mon amour is Camille Bertault's new and fifth album. It was released March 2023.

The percussions are the nexus of the project, intermingling and bringing together worlds that are not generally associated: song, jazz, improvisation, theatre, poetry, slam, and even some electronic textures.

The lyrics are biting, raw, incisive, melancholic and funny and include current topics: confinement, ecology, bullying, relationships, toxic lover, screen addiction...

Camille's various influences are noticeable: Gainsbourg, Brigitte Fontaine, Horace Silver, Monk, André Minvielles, Bjork, Portishead, Ravel, Boris Vian, Fiona Apple, Tania Maria... even though this project affirms that Camille's universe is personal and unique, without ever losing the groove, the trance, the dance.

She brings together for the first time and exclusively, the musicians with whom she has been touring for several years: Minino Garay, Argentine percussionist who has notably filmed 20 years with Dee Dee Bridgewater. Fady Farah, Lebanese pianist virtuoso that Camille met at the conservatory 10 years earlier. Christophe "Disco" Minck, bass, multi-instrumentalist and composer of film scores (Klapish in particular) and as a guest on some songs, the excellent trumpeter flugelhorn player Julien Alour.
