Bloavezh Mat – Happy new year message


Normally in Brittany, it is possible, acceptable, usual to wish “happy new year”… until the 31st of January! But since we have many other things – including music and video – to share in the up-coming days, we’ll start with a short message – and a cool new inside!

La Jotinette – help us win a little contest!


“La Jotinette” is the name of a tune from Central France (the name of the dance is bourrée nivernaise). We entered a little contest on facebook, and proposed our version with a little video. Music-wise it kind of sounds… well, probably more Breton than from real central France!

For the video, I used dances from Greece (a lot of Zeybekiko but not only), from Turkey (including some Zeybek by Atatürk!), from Galicia and of course from Central France.

 

To support us, like the original post on the Facebook page here (only “like” the post, not the actual YouTube video – although you also may!)

We really really had a lot of fun putting the music and video together, we hope you’ll like it and support our version, because we want to go there to get our prize (a special smoked ham!), that would be a perfect excuse to meet musicians from there… and maybe make a jam session around “La Jotinette”!
