With his new CD project Collage, Beat Kaestli continues his exploration of European Song, focusing on French music and its international reaches and influences. His very personal Francophonie includes folk songs from France and Switzerland, French, Franco-American and international standards and originals while blending French with his native German, English, Spanish, and Portuguese. It portrays his love of French music and his extensive musical journey. Kaestli further explores the French-American connection in Jazz and, with his unique arrangements he dares to venture beyond the usual chanson bringing even countries like Mexico and Brazil seamlessly into his musical landscape of French culture.
