Introduction

Unit image

This unit concentrates on popular music. Through examples taken from the Norman heritage, rock in Louisiana or slam in Bordeaux, you will enjoy, we hope, the diversity of what is called "musiques actuelles’’. A few favourite themes of the Norman and Breton heritage will be covered in more detail. Finally, we will take you on a mini tour of the francophone musical scene, discovering the work of a few artists whose inspiration draws its sources from three different continents.

This unit is an adapted extract from the Open University course Envol, intermediate French (L211) [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] .

Please note:

Although the introductory text is in English, the main unit itself is entirely in French.
