The French Institute (Alliance Française) will receive The Bagad of Auray (Kevrenn Alre in Breton) in march, giving you the opportunity to discover live Breton music walkman.gif . A bagad is a band of bagpipes, "oboes," and percussion unique to Brittany. Modeled on pipe bands, bagpipes are included as well as a drum section of bass, tenors and snares. The addition of the bombard, a very loud member of the oboe family, is what gives this ensemble its unique sound. The bombard adds a level of energy that will take you to the next level!

The bagad of the Kevrenn Alre has won six championships of Brittany, most recently in 2006. You will be hearing the BEST of Brittany. Their dance group has won ten championships in Brittany also! For their stop in Philadelphia they will show off traditional dances of Brittany and a few of the many costumes that are part of a rich heritage of Breton culture.
This is truly a once in a lifetime event! For more information visit the Kevrenn's website: www.kevrenn-alre.com (in french)

For more information about their performance in the St. Patty's Day Parade in New York City, and the Philadelphia show, keep an eye on the following website:



Que restera-t-il de notre sang mêlé au sel, sans trace dans les mémoires ? Une ultime navigation, trompeuse. Et des souvenirs, illuminés d'embruns. Mais condamnés au silence de la mer... Loïc Finaz.
