WORLD MUSIC

INTRODUCTION:
We love music a lot and we could not absolutely live without it.
Even if we belong to countries so different in their culture and traditions, we enriched very much our musical likes.

Especially the breton music with its celtic root, its rock and folk shades, has transmitted us the culture of dissidence that you can find in the lyrics of the most of the Breton artists' songs.

OUR "NORMAL" LIKES:
Our likes regarding rock and pop music are: Scorpions, Queen, Ultravox, U2, Depeche Mode, Dire Straits, Pink Floyd, Tear for Fears, Police.

Among the foreign singers we prefer Rod Stewart, Sting, Jean Michel Jarre, Midge Ure and Daniel Balavoine. Finally we had the possibility to know two of our favourite singers MIDGE URE (after his concert hold at Rolling Stone in Milan on 16th February 1998) and MANGO (after his concert hold in Milan at the Teatro Lirico in March 1998). It has been fantastic speaking with them and shaking their hands !!!!!!!

And what about the Italian artists??? Well, we listen Lucio Dalla, Angelo Branduardi, Luca Carboni, Mango, Battiato and......................many others!!!!

THE CELTIC MUSIC:
During the last years the Breton music reappeard before the curtain thanks to new bands and the the renewed artistical inspiration of the historycal bands and artists. The originality of this music characterized by the use of celtic instruments as harps, flutes, Breton pipes, violins, accordions but also distorted and acoustical guitars. The common arguments that you can find inside the Breton lyrics, often in Breton language (brezhoneg) are the claim of their own origin in the deep soul and the recognition of the total indipendence of Brittany from the central political power in Paris. The Tri-Yann in their famous song "La Découverte ou L'Ignorance" (discovery or ignorance): - << Separatist? Autonomist? Regionalist? - Yes and No! - Different! >> -.

- Tri-Yann (the historical band;
