Saz in Kiev


A short video is on the tube with sequences filmed while we were living in Kyiv in June/July 2020, and we miss Kyiv, we miss Ukraine, we miss travelling. The first part of the tune is from South Brittany, the second half is from Albania/Balkans and is called Loukoum – and we have a longer version of this on stage 😉 The instrument is a Saz/Bağlama and is from Turkey (at least this one is 😉 )

Petra nevez? What’s up? Quoi de neuf ?


It seems we have been more active on video that with words – which seem in a way odd since video editing is from far more time-consuming than writing, but you know…. we love videos! Anyway, we’ll keep it short tonight, but just know that we started a small daily challenge on our YouTube channel (if you’re not subscribed yet, check it out! http://www.youtube.com/astrakanproject?sub_confirmation=1).

Curieusement, il semble que l’on soit plus actifs en vidéos ces temps-ci que sur le blog… ce qui semblerait étrange étant donné le temps que prend l’édition de chaque vidéo, mais pas tant que ça, si on se rappelle à quel point on aime les vidéos ! (mais dans tous les cas pensez à passer sur notre chaîne : http://www.youtube.com/astrakanproject?sub_confirmation=1)

We’ll post a short (less than one minute, in the shorts format easy to access on your phone!) video every day, with glimpses from our creative lives, and in which we can use more Breton – but with all kind of subtitles. You may learn some words on the way 😉 and effortlesly !

Et c’est le bon moment parcequ’on poste en ce moment une vidéo par jour (moins d’une minute, en format accessible sur mobile), avec des moments de nos journées toujours très remplies. C’est l’occasion d’utiliser plus de breton – mais avec plein de sous-titres bien sûr. Et c’est peut-être même l’occasion d’apprendre quelques nouveaux mots sans effort !

Here are the 3 first episodes / voici les 3 premiers épisodes

Please like and comment and share! It helps us immensely growing the channel! / S’il vous plaît, likez, partagez, commentez! Ca nous aide vraiment à faire connaître la chaîne.
