BARREL ORGAN MUSIC (article first published : 2001-07-13)

On July 20 at the Alliance Française, Paulette and Robert Hulin will be singing traditional French songs to the Barrel Organ.

This is a unique opportunity to hear original French music from a hurdy-gurdy, an instrument dating back several centuries which is now very rare in France and almost unheard of in South Africa. Songs such as Sous les ponts de Paris, Frou Frou and Le petit vin blanc will conjure of the classical images of Paris – berets, baguettes and bunches or garlic. Or simply provide a reminder of “la musette”, the popular dance to accordion or organ music.

Tickets R30 (Alliance members R25) include a French meal. Cash bar will be available. More details from (031) 312-9582.
