Sounds of Paris


Paris is a musical city.  One of the stand-out impressions for me was the music being played live all other the place.  So! Here are three videos of musicians entertaining all over Paris.

On the steps of the Sacré-Coeur, a harpist playing the French classic La Vie en Rose ….

Musicians randomly jump on trains in the metro system, play a quick song or two, and jump off again in a few stops.  Their music is always lively, and I especially like these two guys playing guitar and accordion.  I didn’t get any video – the audio is set to some of my pictures of the Parisian Metro.

This guy was also playing on the steps of the Sacré-Coeur. It’s a popular place for impromptu music because soooo many tourists are in the area.

I loved the music all around Paris. : )
