ASTRAKAN PROJECT (FR – Dub Electro Folk)
September 22, 2016 @ 12:00 am - 9:00 pm
Yann Gourvil and Simone Alves are not native Breton speakers but have a very firm grounding in Breton Culture. After some years of learning the language and the music, they left for Isanbul where they picked up the techniques and instruments of the Middle East.
Mixing traditional ancient Breton songs, Simone Alves’ haunting voice melds with Yann Gourvil’s Oud, Saz, guitar or Darbuka, all of it layered and looped into mesmerizing beats.
