I’d love to write a huge post on the similarities and differences between French music and Brazilian music but I’m going to keep it simple this time and name a few connections I’ve seen in recent times.
Pierre Aderne – Born in France, Lives in Rio
Márcio Faraco – Born in Brazil, Lives in France
Christophe Mae – Born in France, Lives in France (but made a video in Brazil and has a Port. last name)
Below is his video ‘On s’attache’ (I think it means ‘one gets attached’)
Also there’s Jano (Jean Leguay) who isn’t a musician but is an artist from France. In 2001, he made a documentary in Rio de Janeiro called ‘Rio de Jano’ in which he draws the landscapes and the people. Since the film’s site is a bit out of date, heres an example or two of his work.
