Chanson & Swing from 30s to 50s Paris
Adapted from a photograph by Benjamen Chinn Paris 1950
From the dimly-lit cafes and humid dance halls of Montmartre and Pigalle, to the bohemian left-bank cabarets of Montparnasse and St Germain-Des-Pres;
Romantic and defiant, dramatic and sentimental, melancholy, humorous and proud - songs that echo still in the streets and boulevards.
The evocative, ageless sound of Paris
in the golden era of Chanson,
Jazz and Swing.
