A film by Nicolas de Susini
From the streets to the charts.
Macadam Music tells the stories of artists who experienced the street be it by choice or necessity. Long before the outbreak of record discs, musicians had no other mean to share their work and passion with an audience than to reach out directly to the people. Using public space and walkthrough areas as a stage, they livened up people’s everyday lives.
Some of these artists still perpetuate this tradition and still enliven our lives on a daily basis.
