Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

La Belle Epoque Ensemble take you back to the streets of Paris at a time when local musicians would populate the cafes and bars playing what would come to be known as "bal-musette," a style of French music and dance which arose in 1880s Paris. The French upper-class began frequenting these establishments, looking for excitement among the poor and downtrodden. Some staged mock police raids for their benefit. It was in about 1945 that musette became the most popular kind of French music. It's biggest stars were known across the country until about 1960, when it's popularity declined drastically. Now a form of modern musette is emerging, and a revival of such music is apparent, especially in big towns. Original classic recordings, digitally remastered.
