Massilia Sound System

EUROPE (FRANCE). Occitanista

The musically sensational and politically outspoken band Massilia Sound System has been stirring up Marseille since 1984. While their lyrics are largely in Occitan, the main ambition of these seven composers and performers is to revive cross-cultural exchanges via the power of the city's rich cultural melting-pot, thus restoring tolerance and joie de vivre. Their motto is to rouse the people and bridge the generation gap, a theme that is constant in their brisk and lively music and their infectious optimism on stage. Now available as a mid-priced reissue, Occitanista was originally released in 2002.
