Album Review
Reviewed 2007-11-26

Here are the best of the French singles we received for December from the Francophonie Diffusion network. Music from France and French-speaking countries. Styles range from straight-up French pop to reggae and Afro-folk. Since these are hand-picked I can recommend any track.

1. Destination Amazone by Deldongo from the album “Destination Amazone”
Playful and bright Latin dance jazz with hot horns, percussion and vocals. 4:34

2. La Chance de ta Vie by Florent Marchet from the album “Rio Baril”
Quirky, lazily playful pop with a banjo adding unexpected accents. Fun! 3:17

3. La Cafard des Fangares by Ours from the album “Mi”
Breathy male vocals chasing tight guitar in hip mid/upbeat rock. Way cool. 4:22

4. Repenti by Renen Luce from the album “Repenti”
Lazy indie folk with relaxed male vocals and strings. Wonderfully emotive voice. 4:06

5. Mon Agenda by Samir Barris from the album “Quel Effet?”
Relaxed & warm rock w/a catchy hook & sexy male vox. Delicious. 2:08

6. Demain t’appartient by Alpha Bondy from the album “Jah Victory” (Piste 5)
Hip and stylish Euro-Reggae w/hip-hop vocals and great energy. 4:14

7. Pardonner by Fen from the album “Pardonner:
A relaxed Arabic-infused loved song groove. Great percussion & vocals. 3:47

8. Anin by Melanz Nazyon from the album “Compilation Francophonie MIDEM 2007”
Warm midtempo African folk with sweet call/response type vocals and percussion. 4:05

9. Mbgak Afroup by Rocher Band de Mezesse from the album “Compilation Francophonie MIDEM 2007” (Piste 13)
Sweet, life-affirming African harmonies, gentle percussion. Swaying and warm fun. 4:12

10. Bakento Babuana by Papa Kourand from the album “Compilation Francophonie MIDEM 2007” (Piste 15)
Light and joyous Afro pop with wonderful djembe, vocals, percussion. So sweet!3:28
