It has been customary in this city's iteration of the Fete de la Musique to program bands from France. For the 16th edition of the solstice event, Baden Baden was invited to headline Tuesday's evening of musical performances – their second Lebanon show after a Monday night concert in Zahle. This didn't seem to drive away the band's fan base, as it continues to tour the world and export the new French musical scene.TDS: Does the audience usually know you in all those countries?TDS: Your first album, "Coline," was bilingual, whereas your second, "Mille Eclairs," was in French.TDS: What role does language play in music for you?Everyone in the band enjoys Anglo-Saxon music, but [as francophones] the relationship with your own music is not necessarily the same when you sing in French.
