Music is a rebellious bird.

Zic Zazou (French homepage) is a group of nine musicians who often play music using objects and toy instruments. Here is a delightful video of them performing the Habanera from Carmen in a workshop, with the workshop.

Many more from their You Tube channel.

This was delightful. I love improvised music and the Habanera. Seeing the Bell Grinder was especially nice because I love a pun.

Why do I love the Habanera? I was exposed to it early. There's a different version by the same workshop from 2009.

A good start, but they'll have to work much harder to surpass Spike Jones.

There are many problems in living in a country where many businesses still have their employees work no more than 35 hours per week. I like to think of the existence of groups like Zic Zazou as a good example of an up-side.

I also think they look like they come from a glorious forgotten out-take in "Delicatessen".

That was great! Loved the improvised xylophones--were those made of metal files?
