A Small Country With Multiple Musical Facets
As a country where surrealists reign, Belgium has also given birth to some pearls among the finest of French-language song. The most famous of all remaining, without doubt, "le Grand Jacques". Adulated in his homeland, Brel has furthermore been voted the greatest Belgian of all time by the Walloons.

But Belgium is also a country where joking and amusement are to be found at every street corner generating "Sttelllas" and "Gauff' au suc'", hilarious extraterrestrial species whose humour is equalled only by their craziness.

Look like British

Belgium today wants to be cool and cosmopolitan. This is evidenced by the many groups of young Belgians singing in English, such as "Girls in Hawaii", "Malibu Stacy" or "The Tellers", who are collapsing the market and dreaming of the same career as their Flemish elders, those of "Deus" or "Venus".

On the French-speaking side

The marvellous voice of Maurane continues to make Frenchmen dream. They who have already succeeded in appropriating Johnny Hallyday would undoubtedly have wished to do the same with the volcanic Brussels girl.
