Stromae

Papaoutai (Dad, where are you?)

Is a reflection of Stromae’s idea of the relationship he was not able to have with his own father. The Idyllic family setting matched with all the other father/ son and mother/daughter couples working in sync, while Stromae’s father remains statuesque. A physical reminder of an absent father. This song explores Stromae’s own relationship with his father as well as the fear he has that he may become his father.
