Sing, Sing a Song Saturday

Sing, Sing a Song Saturday is all about me discovering something that is different to post. I don't want to post things that you and I have more than likely heard before. I want to find something different. It could be from another country, someone singing from the streets of NY, and more.

This week I found a new band that is French. I like listening to bands from other cultures. The band is La rue Kétanou. Have you heard of them?

They mix elements of reggae, and a bohemian style of life. Their work is theatrical. They sing songs that have poetry and humor. The band includes 3 people from Paris.

Their name translates as ‘The street which belongs to us’.

The first album of La Rue Kétanou, En attendant les caravanes (Waiting for the caravans) was finally produced in 2001. After some time doing tours throughout France, the group completed a second album Y’a des cigales dans la fourmilière (Cicadas in the ant-hill) in 2002. In 2004, they released a live album Ouvert à double tour.


Many of their videos are disabled. I have to go with the ones that are not.

I like traditional Japanese music. Maybe some time you could write about that and tell what you think.

I really enjoy listening to French songs. I get a big kick when they rap. It doesn't sound so ghetto, but it has such a nice beat/rhythm!

You are probably way to young to remember Andy Williams, but he had a wife that was french and I use to love her singing.
