HERE is another pointer to a corner of French music you may not have crossed before, the songs of Paris-born but Algerian influenced Faudel.
His latest album is Mundial Corrida and the first song off it was Mon Pays, where Faudel explores his French life as well as Algeria, the country of his parents and family.
The RFI Musique website provides an extensive background into how Faudel was heralded as Le Petit Prince du Rai, when he broke into the French music scene in the late 1990s.
He has gone on to appear in film and television, as well as release a number of albums that draw on the sounds of North Africa.
