A time of beauty, when music in France reached its peak, especially thanks to the style of the Chanson Française. A style that still lasts in time, that marked an era, and is still listened to today.

Their influence is so wide that even though nowadays when they are no longer too much broadcasted and the tone of the lyric changed, the style has endured in the most classic people, who continue to love their music and even the fashion of that time.

Songs that, if you have been to Paris, you surely have been overwhelmed in any corner, at any time. Songs that you have surely heard in some of the most successful French movies.
