My name is Gabriela, but I go by the artistic name of “DJ Penelope”. My mother language is not English, so you’re probably gonna find some mistakes in my writing from time to time. But I promise I’ll do my best no to murder Shakespeare’s language.
I’m a Brazilian and I’ve been in love with French music since…ever. Really, I can’t remember when all started, all I know is that I was in my teenage years when Édith Piaf came across my way. And I just fell in love with her music. The rest, as people say, is history.
I used to produce a weekly podcast (in Portuguese) specialized only in French music, but nowadays, I just post on my Brazilian blog about my findings in French music. And I’ve been doing that for over 3 and a half years now.
I decided that I wanted to write a blog in English because last time I was in Paris I met this New Yorker guy and he got really excited about all the tips I gave him about Paris and French culture and encouraged me to create a blog. So I dedicate this to him.
Right now, I’m sure I’m talking to nobody, since the blog has just began, but, hopefully, someone out there in the fantastic world of Google will find in this humble abode exactly what they are looking for!
