Article

The sound system serves as the smallest and most agile unit responding to everyday life: In more than 10 years of musical mobilisation, Massilia Sound System have applied and transferred the merits of the Jamaican sound units to French pop culture. Massilia Sound System has always had a strong impact - agitating against the Front National, reporting on street life in multi-ethnic Marseille or as a staunch defender of the old southern European language Occitan, adopting the name of a regional dish as their somewhat ironical battle call: "Aïoli!"
