Music

Do you enjoy listening to “La vie en Rose” in English or do you prefer American-born Joe Dassin who sang mostly in French?  Do you know that Jain, Stromae, and Mylene Farmer form the new generation of Francophone multi-lingual artists who sing across the Atlantic for the pleasure of all? Did you know that France was home to Sidney Bechet, one of the pioneers of the French-mutated jazz style adapted from America’s South?  Today, Claude Debussy’s Clair de Lune is still cast in American Saga’s such as Twilight and reminds us of how timeless French music is. Come treat yourself to a unique musical interlude of all times that will transport you all the way to the Montmartre streets of “Amélie’s” soundtrack composer, Yann Tiersen.
