Les Rita Mitsouko’s groundbreaking video art

Les Rita Mitsouko was a creative and eccentric French duo in the eighties, combining elements of punk, rock, synth pop and jazz. Coupled with the band’s colorful, wild, over-the-top image, Rita Mitsouko were groundbreaking, not only in their music style but also in their visual video art. American record producer and musician Tony Visconti produced the No Comprendo album for Catherine Ringer and Fred Chichin. The most successful single from this album was C’est comme ça. The video is a timeless peace of art celebrating the French avant-garde music video style of the time.
