Monday Morning Music: Zaz in Montmartre

I love running into (good) performers on the street. It’s a sweet bit of serendipity that lifts my mood.

Here’s a ditty by the French singer Zaz. The song, “Les passants,” means passerby.

I thought this might help you imagine strolling through Montmartre and add a little pizzazz to the start of the week. (Thanks PerfectlyParis for the link!)

What are your favorite surprises?

    I LOVE ZAZ! Thank you for putting this up; it totally made my Monday morning. (Even though it’s gorgeous outside, it just makes going into work even more painful…)

    They’re amazing. I hope someone “discovers” them and gets them lots and lots of paying gigs.

    When I was last in Paris I kept seeing the same accordion player over and over – the street, a restaurant, then in the Metro. I loved it. Musical surprises are the best, aren’t they?

      Thankfully, they *have* been discovered. The clip was actually from 2010 and Zaz is a well known singer here as far as I can tell.

      And yes, musical surprises are the best! That’s funny about the accordion player. I sometimes like to think my life is being played against a soundtrack. Seems like you had your own personal musician for your Paris trip ; )

        That’s great – I think that way, too! The accordion play definitely did provide the soundtrack for that trip to Paris. I loved the music so much I braved a huge music store to find a traditional French accordion CD.

    Zaz is so great. :) I really love her. To me, she encapsulates the vibe of Parisian Hipster Gen Y so well, lol. Thanks for sharing this, Sion! (and now off to the hot-off-the-press post! I have been meaning to comment on this one for DAYS now, and finally did).

paris (im)perfect?

Sion Dayson is paris (im)perfect. Writer, dreamer, I moved to France on – no exaggerating – a romantic whim. As you can imagine, a lot can go wrong (and very right!) with such a (non)plan. These are the (im)perfect stories that result.

Share the love!
