Naïve Records

Naïve Records is a French independent record label based in Paris. It was founded in 1997 by Eric Tong Cuong, Gilles Paires and Patrick Zelnik, and the name is inspired by many people's view that only the naive would launch a record label just as digital music and high technology were beginning.

Besides its classical division, Naïve also specialises in jazz, pop, electronic, world, hip hop, children's music and soundtracks.
