There are three artists recording under the name Elsa. The first is a late-sixties era ye-ye girl. Strongly influenced by Bob Dylan, she gravitated toward the folk-rock genre, her song lyrics strongly reflecting typical beat generation themes and protest song structure. Secondly, there is nineties-era chanteuse Elsa Lunghini. Daughter of George Lunghini (actor, photographer and song writer) and of Christiane Jobert (painter and also sister of actress Marlène Jobert), she has Italian origins by her father and his grandfather Luigi (Luigi is also Elsa’s son first name).
