Hello everyone,

Canut's long-awaited solo album GITANO is finally available in digital form from cdbaby.com! It is more than worth the wait. You can read my five-star review on cdbaby.com.

Canut has written on his blog a post called "Sortie physique du CD GITANO" which must mean that the album is now available as an actual CD, from a record company owned by two of his friends in Arles, http://www.passionnes.com. The prices are shown only in Euros on their website.

They also have CDs of vintage albums: Three of José Reyes y Los Reyes: Flamenco Passion; L'Amour d'un Jour; and Gitan Poete, plus Canut's first solo album, Bolero.

The site is FANTASTIC! I looked through it and was amazed to see how many wonderful CD's they have.
( I was also pleased to see a number of CD's which I already own, but were very difficult to come by. Such treasures should be readily available - like the CD's with Jose Reyes.)
I feel like the kid who has been locked out of the candy store. I do not read French and have been unable to purchase. I have searched for a translation tool (you can translate most web sites now) but have been unsuccessful. I may try contacting directly, but if anyone has ordered via this web site, some pointers would be appreciated.

Thanks,

WHO ARE WE?

Artisan + independent record store
Too all music lovers to stay confined paths imposed by the media and prefabricated standardized products, we have chosen since 1989, giving full relief to the rich musical expression of emotions and encounters.

Sensitive south, close to local cultural and social realities, it is around the Mediterranean and across cultural intermingling which for centuries we have built the identity and life of our store: crossroads where, with passion, respect and tolerance, music and people.

Between enthusiasts!
Established since 1989, music-Arles is one of the last craftsmen record stores and independent GPs. Located in Arles, in the city center around its business store, the store has developed a specialized area: the "Shop Passion", a unique space devoted to regional and Mediterranean Cultures:

all bullfights ( Spanish , Portuguese , Camargue , Landes or street ...)
Spain ( Flamenco , Sevillanas , paso-dobles ...)
the Provence and Occitan,
the Mediterranean
with video, DVD, CD , bookstore specializing, decorative objects, art, cards ...
Bringing such a fund is the result of constant hard work to gather all of these documents for sale - many tiny productions - and make them known to the public. Apart from this fabulous selection, the warm and friendly welcome and the quality of advice that are shop meets a growing national and international reputation.
Tool Reference and Information fundamental catalogs home, supplemented by additives regularly sent according to the news, have created a strong and highly appreciated between the shop and aficionados (bullfighting and flamenco).
Since 1999 the entire catalog can be consulted on the Internet with the same concern for accuracy, offering a thematic research sharp, while maintaining ease of use and ease of access.
More than a store, The Shop Passion regularly hosts exhibitions, comic strip artists, journalists of the written press or television, musicians ...
With Culture Association Warning!, music-Arles created Convivencia , which takes place in July each year. "Appointment of usability and collusion, where we share both artistic pleasure, intellectual and culinary delicacies foods summarizing how Occitan live together."

The Shop Passion proves to be a genuine culture, meeting and curiosity and respect, both Ali Baba's cave and Spanish inn, the appointment of aficionados savvy, neophytes curious, crazy toros , fadas of flamenco, the lunatics of Seville, the devourers of paper, Occitanists convinced fans of discovery, and the other (!).
Catherine and John are pleased to welcome you and make you discover and share a thousand riches. Welcome!"

Good luck!

Thank you so very much for taking the time to post this.

I really appreciate it, and will have to make my selections and place an order. There are a number of CD's I have been looking for for quite some time, available.

(As a side note I will also have to install google chrome.)

Thanks again!

Hi musicfan,

You're welcome! I may order some of those classic CDs myself one day; I only have Gitan Poete.

Yes, in addition to having the translation tool, Chrome works better than IE; it doesn't freeze up and say it "has encountered a problem and needs to close." You can also download all kinds of apps, even on a PC.

Just discovered that installing google toolbar with IE will also allow you to translate a web page. When you open a page in another language it will prompt if you want to translate the page. I think non English translation is also an option.

Just one small caution with online translators -- they are not always correct, nor do they always give you the best translation. As a former world language teacher, I could always tell when my students had used them. (One example: Google Translate had "Baila Mi Mora" as "Dance, My Blackberry," when "mora" in Spanish often refers to a brunette woman -- who, I think, would be a better dancer than a blackberry!) If anyone is really confused, you can ask my opinion and I will try to help.

Hi Jusquin,

Thanks for the warning about online translators. I've heard this before and experienced some strange-looking results with them, especially trying to translate from languages like Polish and Russian. It looks like the info from passiones.com is basically correct, though the English isn't totally idiomatic.

Hi, Amanda!

When I read Canut's blog, I could pretty well translate the French in my mind (and often much of the Spanish), but I was sometimes amused to see how it was translated on his blog. The gist of what he said was always there for the most part, however.
