Hg2 : The Hedonist

Music at Chatelet

Pass through Châtelet métro during the day, and you’ll come across some excellent (and perhaps a few not so excellent) musicians busking in its many underground tunnels and passageways.

rnAt one of the main exits there’s enough space to hold a 10-piece band and spectators stop and watch, clogging up the stairway and forcing others to trip past them. It’s a good idea to keep a few pièces (coins) handy, as there are buskers throughout the Paris métro, some of whom will perform on the train, hopping from carriage to carriage (so there’s no escape).

rnThere’s a wide variety of quality and versatility, ranging from a saxophone rendition of ‘Ace of Base’ to juvenile hip-hop (cover your ears) and performance art.
