This non-exhaustive anthology of Walloon songs and music was part of a project that was set up by the French Community of Belgium between 1975 and 1980. If there is one conclusion to be made, it is that celebrations are something of a Wallonian tradition that is not about to disappear. From the music of the drums of the Gilles de Binche to the recordings of the Ducasse in Mons, you can detect a certain innocent, good-natured, friendly gaiety, which is keen on moral, religious or nonsensical stories, so typical of popular oral traditions. They were also very popular among the revivalist musicians of the seventies.

Original booklet available below in English, French and Flemish.
