This formation is led by Gerard Zuchetto and sings Occitan troubadours ballads from 12th and 13th centuries, the same Medieval songs which gave rise to the first modern literature of Europe. An Alchemy of words and sounds, emotions and accents, of Medieval sobriety and contemporary minimalism into the music, a living art to transport us to the most profound sentiment of Occitan poetry.
Higtly effective instrumentation and a subtil use of voices help to put together a performance which has won the seal of approval of the most stringent international festivals and which also demonstrate a capacity to surprise audiences unfamiliar with this kind of music.
