A French craze for exotic rhythms and dances like the cha-cha and the mambo inspired Serge Gainsbourg to explore Latin and Caribbean rhythms at the outset of his career; Couleur Cafe collects 20 of these beat-driven recordings, which span from 1959 to work from as late as 1974. More than his jazz performances of the same period, the earliest songs on the set presage the direction taken on his pop records; in addition to the distinctly snotty attitude which pervades cuts like "Laissez-Moi Tranquille" and "L'Anthracite," the nine tracks taken from the 1964 recording Gainsbourg Percussions innovatively embrace African rhythms while focusing on the thematic concerns (specifically cigarettes, American culture and young girls) of his seminal later work.

The Talented Mr Yared

Jury member at the 70th Cannes Film Festival, Gabriel Yared has been bewitching the ears of film buffs since the 1980s, after having been one of the most sought-after arrangers of French music. His sole mission is to find the right note and the most moving sounds for every film whose soundtrack he produces, whether they be directed by Jean-Jacques Beineix, Jean-Pierre Mocky or Xavier Dolan.

Lhasa, An Unforgettable Shooting Star

With only three studio albums, one live album and three international tours, “Lhasa” de Sela still made her unique mark on contemporary popular music. “La Llorona”, “The Living Road” and “Lhasa” are all accomplished works in their own right and open the door to a strange yet familiar world, halfway between dream and reality. Full of both light and darkness, these songs are imbued with the genuine feelings of an artist whose heartfelt vocals reach out and pull the listener in, creating an intimate relationship with the audience. Looking back at the life of “Lhasa” de Sela, the makings of a legend are visible like chapters in a novel, complete with all the emotion that comes with a beautiful but heartbreaking storyline.

Charles Aznavour: Let The Show Begin!

Charles Aznavour’s life can be summed up with two words: “song” and “comedy”. Very much like a passionate craftsman, the 94-year-old interpreter gave everything he had to show business. So much so that he has made this theme one of the pillars of his work.
