"Prior to WWI the popular bals musette of Paris were run by Auvergnats, originally from mountainous central France.
They played their musette bagpipes, hurdy-gurdies and accordions, as well as mandolins and guitars for the working class of Paris
around the Bastille district who spent their evenings drinking, laughing, and dancing la bourée, la valse, and the 'schottische'.
Ensemble Limousin took the audience back to Paris of the year 1900, so that they could relive this unique period of Parisian life."
