Bastille Day celebration Bastille Day returned to Marlborough Street for a celebration of Francophone cultures. The street party filled the entire block with a stellar concert, dancing, festive food and drinks. Bastille Day, France’s national holiday, commemorates the birth of French democracy. The line-up, programmed by World Music/CRASHarts, showcased two phenomenal francophone acts: Ben l’Oncle Soul, a soulful French singer with a unique retro style, and Daby Touré, who never fails to astound audiences with his ethereal voice, masterful guitar work and original songs.
