First Gen: France

Just as cultural overlaps abound—from the savoir-faire with which people from both cultures approach life, to the boundless creativity they exhibit across all disciplines—musical connections between France and Africa have existed for generations, and have influenced artists around the world. From Manu Dibango, and Joséphine Baker, who’ve influenced countless global artists; to MHD, who blends trap with West African sounds, these artists represent the best of both worlds. First Gen: France celebrates Francophone artists around the world, including hits from Aya Nakaumra, Maître Gims, Booba, MC Solaar, MHD, Niska and more.
