    La Fauve

Carla Bruni

Carla Bruni, little french songsCarla Brunibuy-now

After years on the world stage as the First Lady of France, Mrs. Sarkozy triumphantly returns to her music career. Little French Songs is her first album in four years, and her 4th overall.



Indila, Mini WorldIndilabuy-now

This young Parisian singer first made her mark lacing the tracks of French rappers like TLF, Rohff Nessbeal, and Youssoupha (on the track, "Dreamin'").

Now she steps out on her own with her first solo album, Mini World. Her first single, "Dernière Danse" is a bonafide smash hit. She sings beautifully, and her instrument is on display throughout the album. See the player for some of my favorites.



JeniferJenifer (Bartoli)buy-now

This singer from Nice rose to fame as the winner of the first season of the reality show, Star Academy. Since then, she's made 5 studio albums spawning upbeat hits like "J'attends L'Amour," "Ma Revolution" and "Tourner ma Page," with her third album Lunatique reaching number 1 on the charts.

This hot album L'amour & moi, features the hits "L'Amour et Moi" and "Sur le Fil," which was the song of the summer in France.




Tal is a self-taught guitar and piano player who hails from a musical family. What you might not expect is that her musical influences run the gamut from Old School Blues and Soul singers like Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, and Stevie Wonder, to modern Soul and R&B singers like Angie Stone and Alicia Keys. She was first discovered by the Pop singer Gary Fico.

She burst onto the scene in 2011 with a fresh voice, infectious energy, and a catchy debut single -- "On Avance." Her highly anticipated debut album, Droit de Rever debuted at number 7 on the charts, went double platinum, and spawned a string of hits including "Waya Waya" (with Sean Paul), "Le Sens de la Vie," "Je Prends le Large," and "Rien n'est parfait."


The singer teamed up with Matt Pokora (whom I consider the French Justin Timberlake) for a duet on the Generation Goldman tribute album. Together, they scored top 10 hit with her duet with the remake, "Evole-Moi." In 2013, she released her sophomore album A l'Infini.
