Recontre A Paris
Catalog: FA 573
Barboza, Raul; Colin, Daniel
Composed by: Raul Barboza, Daniel Colin
Already brought together on record by Franck Bergerot and Patrick Tandin in the days of Paris Musette, Daniel Colin (accordion, bandoneon) and RaÃºl Barboza (accordion) have become vibrant legends on their instruments. The scope of this project and their frequent tours in Japan made them genuine ambassadors for a popular, alternative kind of French music. Produced by Dominique Cravic, the founder of the Primitifs du Futur, Rencontre Ã Paris is an album in the image of French capital popularly known as â€œPanameâ€, a cultural melting-pot where â€œmusetteâ€ meets swing, songs, tango, Amerindian musicâ€¦ swept along by the famous Argentinean accordionist. This record could well provide a soundtrack for the Paris of PrÃ©vert and Doisneau. Itâ€™s a snapshot of a generous, popular culture which finds authenticity in roaming over the cobblestones of Montmartre or the Butte aux Cailles, and it succeeds in crossing oceans and time.
