Japan Expo Paris - July 14-17, 2022 Paris-Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center


Get immersed in the universe of the studio Ghibli film Arrietty with Cécile CORBEL who composed its music. Let yourself get carried away into her enchanted world at the festival!

Posted on


Harpist, singer, composer, and songwriter drawing on the Arthurian imagination or the moors of her natal region Finistère, familiar with ancestral tales in which the journey is an initiation, Cécile CORBEL has expressed herself, with her musicians, during numerous concerts on the roads of France and around the globe.

Twice awarded the Gold Disc for the soundtrack of studio Ghibli Arrietty, by director Hiromasa YONEBAYASHI and based on a script by Hayao MIYAZAKI, best film music in 2010 in Japan, this unclassifiable artist keeps multiplying projects, encounters, and recordings.


As she was in the middle of recording a new album – to be released in 2019 –, she flew to China in 2017 with her musicians for a series of concerts. A success as another tour has been planned in Asia in 2019.

Between folk, country and inspired mystical pop, Cécile CORBEL brings out a unique dreamlike atmosphere on stage, unravelling her ideal soundtrack, and her latest album Vagabonde, released at the end of 2016. 

Come meet Cécile CORBEL at Japan Expo: she will be meeting you with signings and obviously a showcase on Friday and Saturday!
