7/4/2014 TKS Presents: ‘Un Voyage Sonique’ track listing

After focuses on other countries, states, and cities, it was high time for a programme devoted to sonic pieces from France. As might have been expected, there was Gallic charm and eccentricity in the mix, but also a surprising number of tracks with texts in English rather than la langue francais, not, I should add, because of any linguistic preference, it was just the way the selection panned out.
Anyway, here are the eleven delights, a sonic palette I’d like to think exhibits a diversity coming close to that of the cuisine of the country…

A laid-back end to the show with Italian-born Nino Ferrer, who celebrated the bicentenary of  La Revolution in 1989 by becoming a French citizen. Perhaps he also had a drink or two.
Thanks this time go out to Graziella Torrigiani, a.k.a Lophorina.  Wishing anyone reading this many a sonic delight, S.
