For this episode of the IndieRE series, second-year students from the Information and Communication studies department at the University of Tours got together in partnership with Radio Campus Tours to bring you a round-up of some known and some less known artists from the Tours region in France. Better known for its wine and its châteaux, but did you also know that the region has quite a vibrant music scene? In this episode, dive into the interviews of local artists and discover the eclectic musical collection from electronic duo Toukan Toukan to jazz with integrated rap with Ultra Light Blazer, to street rapper Basstrick, switching to progressive rock group The Onirist, drummer Marine Flèche and band YMIR. And if that wasn’t enough, learn about the local music scene with its green festivals, alternative venues and music schools.
Bonne découverte musicale!
