Of all the things I never thought I’d see, a krumping tribute to Edith Piaf is one of them.
The YouTube channel Dot Move makes videos that unite two different things you wouldn’t expect to see together in one narrative. Their past videos have combined dancing and kissing, breakdancing and boats, and beatboxing and ballet.
In October, for the 53rd anniversary of the death of Edith Piaf, they made a video featuring world-famous breakdancer Logan Wolf. Breaking it down at the Place Edith Piaf in the 20th arrondissement, Wolf krumps to the tune of Piaf’s “La Foule” (translated to “The Crowd”).
Krumping is an energetic, expressive type of street dancing. Adolescents first started krumping to express their anger and frustration with gang life. Could anything be more different from krumping than Edith Piaf? Probably not, and yet they look amazing together!
