Today sees the start of the MaMA 2015 event in Paris, three days of gigs, meetings and discussions where the music industry and fans get the opportunity to see acts up close in Pigalle and Montmartre.
There are around 40 concerts each day, across over a dozen venues. Amongst the places holding shows are venues like La Cigale , La Boule Noire and Le Divan du Monde.
WhHile there are acts from around the world, there is an overwhelming presence of French talent on the bill, as the event's an important showcase for emerging talent.
Acts on this year include some of the acts that have been fetured on his blog, including Kid Wise, Tahiti Boy and the Palmtree family, Las Aves, Acid Arab and Chapelier Fou.
Dad Rocks!, Aaron, Les Innocents and Shake Shake Go are also playing.
I'll feature some of the acts on the bill later today and over the next couple of days.
