All Music Guide:
The rich violin music of Francophone artist Catherine Lara has been heard for nearly three decades. Beginning her career as an instrumental violinist, she veered off into pop/rock territory in the mid-'70s, continuing to fuse her vocals and violin with a variety of musical styles. Her albums were enriched by the appearance of a number of talented musicians. Tony Levin played on three of her albums in the early '80s, and then at the end of the 1990s and beginning of the new millennium, she formed an alliance with Eric Mouquet of Deep Forest which resulted in his appearance on her 2000 release, Aral.
