Recording some Accordion with : YURI RYADCHENKO

During the arrangement work on “Les Bras Tendus” Roby Tola was talking about the mood of the song and how it took him back to a city in France where he heard someone playing in the street an accordion melody while people passed him without noticing him. Philippe & Gabriel wanted to build on it and started looking for an accordion player that would bring the French culture and a Slavic sadness that would fit the theme of the song which is about ending up living in the streets. He met Yuri Ryadchenko online and Yuri recorded a beautiful introduction that sets the mood to the song and helped bringing it together.
