  • Je vous propose de découvrir Alexandre Poulin, un jeune québécois. Il est un vrai auteur. Sa chanson La cigale et la fourmi" vous donne une perspective différente sur la fable de La Fontaine. Voici son site:
    et son site myspace:
  • Je vous propose de découvrir Coeur de Pirate, une jeune canadienne d'à peine 19 ans, mais qui n'a rien à envier aux plus grands. Une voix enfantine, des textes simples mais efficaces, et des mélodies qui en transportent plus d'un. C'est elle qui compose, et qui joue des instruments, notamment le piano, sa passion depuis l'âge de 3 ans.
    Je vous laisse la découvrir sur son myspace et sur son site officiel. Bonne écoute!

  • Iggy Pop jazz album, indebted to French literature

    Iggy Pop has revealed that he has recorded a jazz album based on the French author Michel Houellebecq's novel 'La Possibilité D'une Ile' ('The Possibility Of An Island').

    In a video interview originally posted on, which you can watch below, Pop explains that he decided to record the album - called 'Preliminaires' - because he was "sick" of listening to guitar bands.

    One song on the album, called 'Les Feuilles Mortes' ('Autumn Leaves'), is sung in French.

    "I've made it really especially for France and people who speak French," the singer revealed.

  • Review : ASA and SPARLHA SWA @ Le Poisson Rouge yesterday evening...

    First part, Sparlha Swa : Jamaican artist and alternative/soul singer, Sparlha's stage performance was bewitching and penetrating. A true acoustic jewel carried out by amazing voice and girl musicians : cello, a bass, synthesizer and vocalist.

    Second part : Along came ASA.

    When you contemplate her on stage you eventually understand what they mean by the "'Revolution of Nigerian Soul". With her Parisian musicians and her Strong, determined and classy personality she really made us fly and sing along for one hour...I''m running out of words to describe Asa's music and style.
    Check it our on her website : Asa Official Website
