Spiritmuse Records presents Spirit of France: Obscure, rare spiritual jazz, deep folk and psychedelia sounds from the French ‘70s - ‘80s underground. Spirit of France is an anthology celebrating the French artists whose total desire not to belong to a particular trend expanded their horizon by pushing the boundaries of creative music.

Recording in caves during the full moon, or in the open air in Ibiza to celebrate the sun, or with fascinating, unusual, artist-built instruments, and with sounds heavily influenced by Indian, African, Arabic, Eastern and Malagasy cultures, this is what makes this compilation so unique!
