LIVE from Rennes, France for Trans Musicales

Late last year, KEXP headed back to Rennes, France, for our third year at the Trans Musicales de Rennes! Our goal, as always when partnering with international festivals like Les Trans, is to discover and share new music from across the globe with you from artists that we may not have otherwise heard. The festival has made a name for itself featuring artists just before they break and seeking new talent from around the world. Check out some of these exciting new discoveries below.
