SonoMusette French Music Band


SonoMusette recaptures the moody, melancholic sound and spirit of mid twentieth-century Paris. French chanteuse, musette accordion, guitar, piano, upright bass, and drum kit combine to revive the enchanting songs of the era. This music has retained its power to charm and transport listeners, and SonoMusette taps that nostalgia with artistry in both vocals and instrumentation. Inspired by the great performers of that era, such as Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel, Charles Aznavour, and Django Reinhardt, along with contemporary artists such as Zaz and Patrick Bruel, SonoMusette brings bal-musette to the “moderne” era.
