I previously put off French music as the equivalent of a Nouvelle Vague film; dramatic, literary, and not as exciting in comparison to Hollywood. But the soulful Charlotte Savary and DJ/producer Wax Tailor helped break that schema and, last Tuesday, the (traditional) French music concert drought broke upon seeing her new music group, Felipecha.
My prior perception of French shows was that of tiny, often smokey cafes or underground jazz clubs featuring music by the likes of the legendary manouche guitarist Django Reinhardt; with people analyzing the music instead of letting it flow through them. I was wrong, of course.[Cont]
