Air De Rien
Niou as in biniou (Brittany’s bagpipe), bard as in bombard, phone as in saxophone. This « imagined traditional music» features Erwan Keravec (bagpipes), Guénolé Keravec (bombard, trélombarde), Ronan Le Gouriérec (barytone sax) et Pierre Le Toux (drums). « The Niou Bardophones juxtapose American jazz and Armorican (a region of Brittany) beat, with fiery bagpipes, thundering barytone sax and frenzied bombard. A surprising mix of Albert Ayler‘s mystic tempo and Breton round-dance beats. » Innovative and energizing !
