A very classy and colored video shot in Nice, South-West of France, that features all the members of the band. Directed by french director Ilan Zerrouki, the video is about unacknowledged desires and unpursued dreams, also called ‘Sacatelism’.

La Femme already counts 2 gold record in France and a Victoire de la Musique, as well as dozens of tour internationally, notably in the US, in Mexico, in Asia and in Europe. They are part of the few french artists that succeeded abroad while singing in french.
As they played so many times around LATAM and Spain, the band had written a spanish song called ‘Le Jardin’ on their previous album Paradigmes, and the inspiration brought them to create a full album in Spanish, that they wrote, composed and produced themselves as for all their previous albums, inviting numerous female singers. The album has found birth through their adventures in Seville, Grenade, Madrid, Mexico City, Cuautepec, Padul… where they had so many moments of laughs and joys, tears and disappointment.
The album is the result of so many inspirations, as the Semana Santa, Inspiration for this album has also been found during the famous Semana Santa in Spain, and through pasadoble, reggaetone, brasilian and andalousian rythms, classic guitars, and movida of the 80’s.
‘Teatro Lucido’ is the name of a mythic theatre where they played many times in Mexico and that has largely inspired them, and is the very first album from a thematic series called “Collection Odyssée”.
