J'ai Deux Amours
About the Project
"J'ai Deux Amours," which translates to “I have two loves,” was performed by Josephine Baker in the 1930s. The 1930 piece was written by Géo Koger and Henri Varna with music by Vincent Scotto. Entirely in French, the song was first performed in the Casino de Paris. The song describes her two loves, “Mon pays et Paris,” which translates into my country and Paris. However, there is some disagreement as to whether the country she refers to is America or France. Help us transcribe the lyrics to this song to discover the music of the 1930s.
