The British and Australians have a nice word for street musicians -- buskers.

You can find buskers busking at lots of places in Paris, for instance at the Place des Abbesses in Montmartre.

I was surprised to find these guys playing in the rain, since most musicians I know are very careful not to let their instruments get wet and pack up at the first sign of a shower.
