My Playlist : Moods of Brazil

During my most recent trip to Paris, I spoiled myself with a stroll through Les Puces de St-Ouen (flea market) with my friends. It’s a place that I adore, filled with treasures and a very special atmosphere, where wanderers and admirers rub shoulders with connoisseurs.

Every time, I’m completely charmed. This particular Saturday was especially animated: it was the St-Ouen Jazz Festival. A wonderful coincidence, since I’ve always been very fond of Brazilian music and Bossa Nova.

When we entered the lovely garden of the «Village Vintage», where you find Habitat 1964 , L’Éclaireur St-Ouen and the charming bistrot La Buvette, we had the pleasure of stumbling upon a Brazilian group playing live in this intimate spot, surrounded by visitors humming and dancing to the rhythm of Antonio Carlos Jobim, Maria Bethânia, and Astrud Gilberto.

Music in complete harmony with the Parisian spirit. Melodies that inspired the songs of many French artists, including Henri Salvador, Georges Moustaki, Julien Clerc and many others. Are you surprised?

I hope you’ll enjoy it.

Have a great trip to the country of Bossa Nova!
