Sounds of Christmas Eve

by soundlandscapes

WHEN THINKING ABOUT which sounds of Paris I might publish here on this Christmas Eve it became obvious that I needed to look no further than the bottom of my little street and what is still my favourite Christmas market in Paris. I went to it this afternoon.


Paris is full of fabulously rich sounds but sometimes the most intimate sounds are to be found closest to home, like the sound of this man singing on the parvis of my local Hôtel de Ville.


Singer at my local Christmas market:

This man on his unicycle provided an interesting diversion.


And then I found this man playing a most extraordinary accordion.


Accordion player:

Happy Christmas!
