Very { wild } live takes + Happy Beltan !


It’s always very cool for us to get videos made from concerts, it’s as if we were at our own concert! This particular video was made in Marseille last month, a very lively and cheerful place, a bit underground too (can you feel the ambiance?). Which actually is a cool combination to listen to our music, at least as far as we can hear!

A fire ambiance that actually is perfect to wish you a very happy Beltan (also spelled Beltain) celebration. Because, yes, tomorrow is May the 1st, and for Celts as in many cultures, Beltan is a Fire and Fertility celebration, a celebration of happiness and joy, also a time to bring new concepts and ideas into the physical world (and yes, our album starts to “unfold”!), and generally speaking a day in which it is easier than usual to communicate with spirits from the Other World, because the veil between our worlds is very thin (the other “big” day like that is November the 1st). Communicate for what you may wonder? Well, maybe to get brilliant ideas, unexpected advices about our major up-coming projects…  So, may your Beltan Day be full of inspiration !

Street colours in Marseille


What we really love about playing in places we haven’t been before is the unexpected discovery. We love to stay one more day to ramble around, get the ambiance of the place. Since we were playing 2 days in Marseille, we had plenty of time to enjoy the colourful and creative atmosphere of this city (South of France). Paintings and colours everywhere, and Monday was fun since all shops doors were closed – first one is the front door of Equitable Café where we played:
