Cuisine Non-Stop: Introduction to the French Nouvelle Generation
Label: Luaka Bop
Strap on your beret and grab a glass of wine: you're about to be transported to the France you always knew existed -- but you just haven't known how to find. Released with little fanfare in 2002, Cuisine Non-Stop provides the slender thread that links post-war cool (think melancholy singers: Gainsbourg, Piaf, and the like) with the multi-ethnic melting pot that is contemporary France. Lo' Jo brings in the Gypsy and African influences; elsewhere rock, rai and rap vie for space with accordions.
