Biography

Ennui, chic, and bonhomie are words native to the beautiful language of français that have seeped into our own. Unsurprisingly, they are all apt descriptions of the international music of Frànçois & The Atlas Mountains and their idyllic and international mélange (there's another one) of highlife guitars, breezy pop melodies and afrobeat rhythms directed by the mellifluous voice of Frànçois Marry.
