Stromae (“Maestro” with reverse syllables) is a Belgian singer songwriter who first found success with “Alors On Danse“. Stromae, whose father was killed in the 1994 Rwandan genocide, released the album “Racine CarrĂ©e” in 2013 and one of the stand out tracks is Papaoutai. (“Father, where are you?”)

Formidable is also great – the video caused a bit of a furore when clips of an apparently drunk Stromae stumbling around a tram stop went viral…
