The troubadour’s ‘fin’amor’ gradually turned into the music of the fabulous South of France.

In the Middle Ages ‘Provence’ was visited by troubadours singing of love and glory. Then came the baroque period and the galoubet, a small flute which brightened both religious and non-religious feasts.

During the XVIIth century, music from the South travelled to Paris; and in the XIXth century, Frederic Mistral, the great poet of southern France, restored nobility to the Provencal language.

He created “Félibrige” groups; poets wishing to spread the local language as well as to send important messages. Their inspiration came from their ancestors, the Troubadours.
