born 28 January 1908 in a Sephardic Jewish family in Constantinople in Turkey, where his father worked for an insurance company, he spent part of his childhood in Bucharest, then arrived in France in 1917. Schoolboy at the Lycee Janson de Sailly, he takes private lessons of harmony and counterpoint with Charles Koechlin. He previously wrote various musical pieces, and was an intern at a piano store on the Champs-Elysees.
It integrates soon 1929 the cast of his classmate Ray Ventura, Ray Ventura and his Collegians, as a composer-arranger-pianist.
Years 30 are for him both Ventura Years, with the phenomenal success of Tout Va Very Good Madame La Marquise, What of what is expected to be happy??, US repeatedly Chez Moi ... and the discovery of music for film, but they are also seeking meaning years. Paul's father had dreamed Misraki his son taking over the family insurance company, and he is a musician! Paul Misraki himself dreamed of symphonic music, and he is author of the best-known comic song of the moment! A search for meaning, composer-singer-songwriter spends her weekends reading, à "turn the tables", visit Chartres Cathedral, dream to retire permanently in a monastery. Finally, he converted to Catholicism and chooses to practice his religion in the real world.
World War II saw the Collegians embark on a tour of South America when the German army invaded the unoccupied zone. In Brazil and Argentina, Paul Misraki made for Ray Ventura Orchestra (which joined Henri Salvador ...), but also for movies, and even a musical, entitled "If Eva hubiese vestido".
En 1945, RKO contacted him to collaborate on Hollywood Heartbeat ("HEARTBEAT"), remake of a French film which Paul Misraki had also collaborated. He composes for Ginger Rogers remained a famous scene. It runs, but the need to return to his family, In France, is the strongest. He embarked from New York to Le Havre where his brother ... welcomes and teaches her death in deportation of her mother and aunt, Auschwitz. Paul discovers all his assets seized, his apartment occupied ... Only the piano, a PLEYEL, was backed by one of his friends, who believed in his return.
From 1946, Paul Misraki collaborations are more varied. He finds Edith Piaf and Danielle Darrieux, but the extent of the interpretations increases, together with the success of Ray Ventura declines.
The film music is becoming more and more over, Paul Misraki and became one of the darlings of the New Wave, including the now cult "And God Created Woman", Roger Vadim, Brigitte Bardot, Claudia Cardinale, and Jean-Louis Trintignant.
Meanwhile, Paul Misraki began publishing books chronicling his spiritual path : philosophical dialogues, novels, tests on esoteric subjects (UFOs, Life after death ...), and finally books where he explained the reasons for his Catholic faith, and Catholicism which he believes.
Paul Misraki married in 1950, and had three children, including Christophe Misrachi involved in issues to discuss the father's memory.
Among his first songs, Fantastic become the generic after the Ray Ventura Orchestra, came the unforgettable Everything's fine madame (1935), inspired by a sketch of Bach and Laverne.
