Fest Deiz 2018
Skeudenn Bro Roazhon & Transat en Ville
Celebration of contemporary traditional breton dance music
The traditional Sunday Fest-Deiz (meaning “the day’s festivities” in Breton) is organised by Skeudenn Bro Roazhon and Transat en ville, focusing on contemporary interpretations of folk dance music. This year’s line-up includes Modkozmik, Larêt-Hi, Triskill and the trio of Yannig Noguet, Sylvain Barou and Roland Conq.

Skeudenn Bro Roazhon is a group of Breton cultural associations from the Rennes area, responsible for organising the Yaouank festival, Brittany’s largest Fest-Noz. Every year, they team up with Transat en Ville to present us their selection of the best contemporary ensembles playing traditional Breton dance music at the heart of the festival. This Sunday for the Fest-Deiz (“the day’s festivities” in Breton), dancers and music lovers will come together again to dance the plinn, gavotte, andro, fissel and ridée, diving into the creativity of contemporary music in Brittany, with Modkozmik, Larêt-Hi, the Noguet Barou Conq trio and Triskill.

Clément Dallot (accordion), Louri Derrien (trumpet) and Yann-Ewen L’Haridon (saxophone) started out as traditional accordion and bombard players, and got into groove when they created Modkozmik, a mix of electronic, brass and traditional music.

The four young singers from Larêt-Hi (Jean-Félix Hautbois, Youenn Lange, Elouan Le Sauze and Alan Letenneur) recently teamed up to play traditional dance music from Vannes in a subtle yet wild dance driven by the power of the vocal quartet.

Sylvain Barou (flute), Yannig Noguet (diatonic button accordion) and Roland Conq (acoustic guitar) have known each other for twenty years and finally decided to form this trio of traditional music veterans with a rock-solid fest-noz repertoire. The generous music of Trio Noguet Barou Conq draws on their favourite traditional themes and their own compositions.

Gurvan Porret (guitar), Lucas Belaunde (bass), Victor Laffargue (violin), Nicolas Foltête (drums) and Matthieu Foltête (accordion) hail from Lannion, and have decided to combine the power of heavy metal with traditional Breton music. The youthful energy of Triskill and its fusion of Celtic metal has been highly successful at Breton balls.
