Josephine Baker, chanteuse, dancer and star of cabaret, movies, musical hall and jazz was an electrifying personality. She was also one of the bravest and most inspiring women of the 20th century who took an unwavering stance against racism and intolerance. American born, she was feted in France where she lived for most of her extraordinary life. Amidst all the controversy, there lay a deep-rooted talent as a singer who later inspired Britain’s own Shirley Bassey. Here are 40 charming songs that exude Ms. Baker’s grace and cosmopolitan passion.
