From soul to fingers. Eyes closed, as useless in this moment.

Thanks, that's nice.

there is not much about Breton music
here are some ideas anyway.
Kerden Cordes de Bretagne, booklet plus CD
there is also the very good libretto by Soig Siberil: Gitar, but there is no CD but the songs can be found on Youtube.
Thanks, that's intereresting to learn, does the dearth of books of Breton music mean that all the players of traditional music must learn the tunes by ear from other musicians?

I will try to answer you if the translator is correct.
As in many countries there was music for the nobility, aristocracy and music for the people which was performed for weddings and important events.
This music was rarely written and was transmitted orally.
the traditional instruments are the Bombarde, the Biniou, the accordion.
the guitar only came 40 years ago in groups and mainly for accompaniment. Musicians like Soig Siberil, Gilles le Bigot, Yvon Riou, Roland Conq or Nicolas Quemener have started playing as fingerstyle soloist. The musicians who play Biniou or Bombarde have often transmitted their music to them orally.
There are still sheet music books for traditional instruments, but the demand is not very high.
While there has been a renaissance of traditional music in Brittany in recent years, it should be noted that for several generations the French state has done everything to erase Breton culture.
My father as a child was not allowed to speak Breton even in the schoolyard. In the classes it was written on a blackboard: it is forbidden to spit and speak Breton.
Many things could not be transmitted in this way, but not all fortunately.

Beautiful music and beautiful story, Remy. Thank you for sharing both. My wish for you is that as you play this song, the Korrigans appear once again.

Thanks for that detail Remy, sounds very similar to the cultural history of Wales, I do play one Breton tune, An Alarc'h because in the 1950s a Scottish traditional singer learned the song from a Breton singer and put the tune to an old lyric, perhaps medieval for which no tune survived, Twa Corbies is Scotts dialect for Two Ravens, in this version you can hear it is the same tune as An Alarc'h. The words are very grim and appropriate to be matched to a Breton song about a battle with France.
