Discovering French Music, Volume 2



Here's the volume 2 of the internet mixtape series Discovering french music. You'll find some classics of chanson (Brassens, Barbara, Ferré) and some new chanson (Renaud, Têtes Raides), a chanson-jazz singer (Nougaro), some underground rock (Négresses Vertes, Noir désir, Brigitte Fontaine), some house (Daft Punk), and some hip-hop/dub crews (High Tone, L'armée des 12, IAM, Saian Supa Crew). 15 great french songs that I hope you'll enjoy listen. I chosed three of them with english lyrics so that you can understand them (Noir désir, Daft Punk, and Brigitte Fontaine). Cover's picture is the great Brigitte Fontaine.
