  About us  

Welcome to Francomix - Music from the french-speaking communities make the world dance! Our aim is to promote French-speaking music. On our website you will be able to find criticisms on the best French-speaking music, features on French-speaking artists or musical news. Our radio Francomix allows you to listen to our radio show which is broadcast in the United States and on the Internet.

Francomix’s ambitions are to gather the first international community together around this site sharing the same interest for French-speaking music. Accordingly the Francomix site is trilingual: French, English and Spanish*. And we expect you to share our experience! By discussing and exchanging your views on the Francomix messageboards, by registering to the Francomix newsletter, but especially by sharing with us what made you thrill! The registration is free. You dream of being a writer? Suggest your own articles, your news and take an active part in the development of the Francomix community, your community.

Who is Francomix?
Francomix (« francophone » + « mix ») is the name of different music projects for the promotion of worldwide French-speaking music. Founded by Olivier Marteau and Philippe Bessière, the first name was originally « La vie en rose » (referring to the famous Edith Piaf song) before it became « Francomix » in 2000. The name is the result of two ideas: “franco” coming from « francophonie » (French-speaking world) and “mix” related to its diversity.

The site is managed by the LNBa association. Completely independent, Francomix is entirely free for the Net surfers. To pay its operating expenses, Francomix offers you to buy the CD mentioned in its pages via our partner.

What is francophonie?
What is francophonie? There are several definitions of the francophonie (geographical, linguistic). It is the linguistic definition which was here privileged; i.e. the communities which have French as first, second or third language.

(*) It would be great if all of you sg Spanish could help us translate our articles. You only need to register and go back to Francomix private room. Many thanks!
