Stivell, Alan - Back To Breizh (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 15-MAT 233394
"Alan Stivell just keeps getting better. 'Back to Breizh' brings him back to his roots in Brittany. But it's a return informed by his recent collaborations with Khaled, Youssou N'dour and other world artists.

The result is an album that sets traditional Celtic themes against a backdrop of other ethnic sounds and influences.Sung in French and Breton (with English translations in print), the lyrics include messages both universal and local. 'Skoit 'n Treid,' for example, calls for protection of the global physical and cultural environment, while the title song is an anthem to Breton nationalism, containing a chorus that spits defiance at French government policy towards Brittany. And in 'Brian Boru' Stivell transforms a traditional Irish martial song into a hymn of peace for Northern Ireland.

All in all it's a remarkable achievement: proof that modern Celtic music is not all pseudo-mystical New Age tweeness!"-Richard K. Edwards
