"When you need to create an atmosphere of love and romance, when you need to invoke the mood of a
smoky Parisian café, when you need to capture the sounds of mystery, journeys, and found and lost loves,
turn to the music of accordion virtuoso Jacques Pellarin" - Mike Dias ( Music supervisor for Ultimate Ears )

For over 27 years, virtuoso accordionist Jacques Pellarin has brought the sounds of the French countryside
to all corners of the globe. With 6 albums and multiple international tours, he has shared his
musette-inspired accordion compositions with a world-wide audience.
Jacques’ professional career began as part of the internationally acclaimed Baikal Duo and after 18 years of
classical performances, Jacques formed a quartet and an acoustic trio in order to pursue a freer
interpretation of jazz and world music. In 2011, the Jacques Pellarin Quartet released the
critically-acclaimed album Sup Dude and today, Jacques continues to compose, perform, and tour but his
focus is now on sharing his music with a larger global audience through strategic placements and song
