Album Review
Reviewed 2008-04-04
Here are the best of the French singles we received for April from the Francophonie Diffusion network. Music from France and French-speaking countries. Styles range from straight-up French pop to reggae/hip hop, jazz and Afro-folk. Since these are hand-picked I can recommend any track.

Piste 18
