Oh My - More French Music!

Two videos were embedded here from Youtube -

But HEY - where did those videos go?
I´ll leave the blog post anyway, to keep the the little info we have here:

Here are some French artists I know nothing about, but they throw some Robert Wyatt into the mix!

First - Barbara Carlotti: Le Chant des Machines "with a mix of "Sea Song" by Robert Wyatt and "Stay" by Rihanna" (YouTube)!?

Second - O: Azerty "with a mix of "God Only Knows" by the Beach Boys, "Sea Song" by Robert Wyatt and "Le Clan des Siciliens" by Ennio Morricone" (YouTube)!

Sea Song(e)s

Damn my rusty French, but this looks and sounds interesting!

A work (only live?) freely inspired by Robert Wyatt's album "Rock Bottom".


Sophia Domancich - piano, keyboards
Bruno Tocanne - drums
Antoine Läng - vocal, effects
Rémi Gaudillat - trumpet, flugelhorn
