Louise Ebrel & Ifig Flatres (photo from this Breton music page); Diese3 (photo: Edwige Bayon).

Live in the studio: Diese3, a compelling new trio from Brittany in the northwest of France that works traditional Breton influences in strikingly modern ways. Plus Louise Ebrel, an acclaimed singer of Breton's emblematic traditional call and response vocal style, kan ha diskan, daughter of Eugénie Goadec of Brittany's renowned Sœurs Goadec sings duets with Ifig Flatres, a leading voice among Brittany's new generation of traditional singers (and also vocalist with the excellent new-roots ensemble Oktopus Kafé).

All of the artists were here for a Breton style Fest-Noz - "Night Festival" - held at Connolly's, 121 W 45 St. on Saturday May 22, 2010. The festival was presented by New York's Breton cultural society BZH-New York.

Big thanks to our illustrious engineer Dave Mambach and Francois M for the hook-up!

Thanks, Rob, for the Kornog track; before I refreshed the playlist, I knew it was them! You also allowed me to discover Dièse3 as it's been a long time since I kept track with breton music. The rest is of the same quality.
