A large group of people, including children and American and British soldiers, crowd around a trio of musicians to hear a new song in the Place de la Madelaine, Paris, France. The sun shines on the musicians (an accordion player, a female drummer, and a violinist) as they are conducted by an older woman, who is preparing to sing. A small news stand can be seen in the background.
