El MAS ALEGRE (Spanish)

Chez-moi aims to be a new kind of nostalgia show, a reflection of the “belle époque”. This is achieved through covers of well-known melodies, popular artists and musical styles of the era, without going back to the original recordings of the period. Biographical notes are also inserted, and memories of the day’s events on the music scene are highlighted, as well as birthdays. I also take the time to chat with the artists who appear on the show.
