French Chanson renews itself constantly and the songs from the 1950's and beyond coexist beautifully with those of the second decade of the 21st Century because they have a common paradigm. We, the listeners, reap the benefits when we listen to the former as well as the latter.

French Chanson can be addictive and thanks to its constant renewal it will never become stale. The songs from the 1950's and beyond have a timeless beauty and the ones written by the generation who came of age in the second decade of the 21st Century continue this beautiful tradition. In this Series of 5 episodes you'll discover beautiful examples of the older and newer songs.
