It will bring a little joy on line 13. In parallel with her pantheonization, Joséphine Baker received a new tribute this Tuesday morning.

The Gaîté station, on metro line 13, was renamed in the name of the artist and resistant.

Located a few meters from the Bobino Theater, the station was not chosen at random, since it was in this room that the singer and dancer performed for the last time, on April 9, 1975, two days before her death. .

This is not the first time that this district has paid homage to him since on the other side of the rue de la Gaîté is the place Joséphine Baker.

“Gaîté and Joséphine Baker are two words that go together very well,” said at the microphone of our colleagues from TV5 Monde, Brian Bouillon-Baker, the singer's son at the initiative of the request made to the Ministry of Transport and RATP.
