Salut Salon on safari... in Paris! French tour begins next week.

The German quartet with the very French name play music from their forthcoming Carnival Fantasy album.

Salut Salon, the German quartet that became an Internet sensation with more than 20,000,000 YouTube hits on their 'Competitive Foursome' Four Seasons with a twist, are embarking on their first highly-anticipated French tour next week.

With several venues already sold out, the fierce, all-female foursome are bound to delight French audiences with their unique version of Saint-Saëns' Carnival of the Animals - the inspiration for their forthcoming album, Carnival Fantasy.

The eight concerts in France, from 19 January, culminate in a debut performance at Paris' magnificent Salle Gaveau.

The quartet's French-tinged name is a combination of the word for 'greeting' from Elgar's Salut d'Amour, and the 'salon' music that was their starting point. Their performances are a vibrant combination of classical repertoire, tango, cabaret, and everything in between.

Salut Salon's new album Carnival Fantasy will be released in February 2016.
