French-Chinese music connection

Dantès Dai Liang is a well educated, well credentialed singer who is totally bicultural French/Chinese. I played my students this song because I have a number of students learning French who are of Chinese background. They really liked the song and so did my other students. We were in French class listening to a French singer singing in Mandarin with French and Chinese subtitles. The students really appreciated that and we all knew our world was now different in a good way because speaking different languages and making the cultural connections is what the world is now about.
