Marie Rouanet (Maria Roanet) (born 1936 in Béziers, Hérault) is an Occitan singer and writer.
Her father was a mechanic and she studied to be a school teacher. Since she was very interested in the history and the ethnography of her region, she started to write poems and songs in Occitan and was a member of the so-called Nova Chançon (New Song) along with Patric, Joan-Pau Verdier or Rosina de Pèira . She performed her wedding with Ives Roqueta in Occitan in 1978.
She has released records with the company Ventadorn and written several books in French.
