    Was The 19th Century A True Shift In The History Of Arts & Science?

    If someone would ask me about my preferred moment in Arts, I would answer without any hesitation “THE 19TH CENTURY”.

    Breaking News: Brigitte Announced An Acoustic Tour For 2019

    Brigitte is definitely our “coup de coeur” in 2018. The French singing female duo reinvented a laid-back type of music, like if California was invited to Paris with more sexiness!
