Voix du Sol Français, Vol. 2: La Francophone: France and Its Diaspora

The second volume of Voix du Sol Francais presents a musical survey of French language, music, and culture beyond its borders. Beginning with songs from the 15th century, Emilie George provides the listener with examples so that they may better understand the roots of French colonial culture. The liner notes provide thumb nail histories of the impact of this culture on North American, Caribbean, and central African peoples and settlers as well as French speaking Europeans.
