LES PRIMITIFS DU FUTUR:

Legendary underground cartoonist Robert Crumb and guitarist Dominique Cravic founded Les Primitifs du Futur in 1986 craving real Parisian musette instead of poor imitations heard in variety shows. Sounding like they've stepped right out the '30s, the members of Les Primitifs du Futur brilliantly blend world-musette and Django-style guitar into old-fashioned originals.

With their three albums "Cocktail d'amour", "Trop de routes, trop de trains" and “World Musette" made up of original compositions, Les Primitifs du Futur remain at the forefront of the renaissance of “chanson française” manifestly occurring in France today.
