Benjamin Siksou: La bande à Renaud 2

A second volume of La bande à Renaud came out at the end of last month, a follow up to the tribute
collection that was released earlier this year.

The first volume of La bande à Renaud saw the work of the beloved French singer songwriter interpreted by the likes of Cœur de Pirate, Bénabar and Nicola Sirkis from Indochine, along with Carla Bruni and Nolwenn Leroy.

Renan Luce, the son in law of Renaud, is another of the featured artists.

The album reached number one in the French charts, with the version of Mistral gagnant by Cœur de Pirate reaching the top 20.

The new volume sees a number of new artists on the bill including Thomas Dutronc, along with  Emmanuelle Seigner and Bernard Lavilliers.

Benjamin Biolay, Nolwenn Leroy, Nicola Sirkis and Renan Luce make return appearances.

Health problems means Renaud himself is keeping a low public profile, but his music is continuing to find a whole new audience.
