Back from the Road to Albion Tour #1


6 days in the UK and 4 gigs, a great time for us! We played in East Anglia (Colchester, Norwich and Ipswich) and then in London, and above all we discovered other ways of touring and organising as a band. In France, we like things to be really organised, planned ahead, whereas in the UK, at least when it comes to organise concerts, people are so much more relaxed! We have to confess… it really fest good! It really felt good to be taken seriously as self-produced band, it really felt good to be able to organise things with short notice, it really felt good to be welcomed and supported by lovely people (including the members of the lovely band Kiss The Mistress).

It was all good!

For the first time…

  • We “rented” a hall in which we organised our own concert (Norwich)
  • We played 3 gigs in a row with the same band as support act (yes!)
  • We took the ferry to play on the same evening (Colchester)
  • We performed with an amazing beautiful bellydancer, Helen! Oh yes…

And if you want even more of this ambiance, our friend Ginette did this short video {enjoy!}

Meeting and performing with Helen was a very powerful experience, a treasure that we’ll keep among our nicest memories.

Did you guess what I’m already busy with? Of course, putting together another UK tour! (and dear reader, if you have any suggestion, a place you know, a venue, a festival, please, let us know, after all we are making it happen together, right?)

The Road to Albion, episode 4 & a tribute to Oasis


It’s no secret that we both love British Pop! Wonderwall from Oasis is among this sound we love.

We’ve finished packing, we’re leaving Greece today, to get to Belgium on Friday right on time for our concert on Saturday night, and then head to Dunkerque and board to UK.

If you want to stay tuned, check out http://facebook.com/astrakanproject which is the easiest place for us to share while on the road – and yes, of course, be prepared for loads of road-trip videos & pictures!

The Road to Albion, episode 3


We’re glad we keep on investigating for shows in the UK… so far our contacts there have really been friendly and creative and respectful. And believe it or not Yann is almost ready to give up on coffee – well, for the week we’ll be there!
