With this release we dive deep into the mythologies and legends of the Celts, Gauls and Bretons, which, as you know, has not only become socially acceptable since Loreena McKennitt or Blackmore's Night. Cécile Corbel comes from Brittany, so she more or less grew up with the legends of her mythical homeland, which also went down in history as Little Britain. And she plays the harp, in keeping with her status, and sings in (almost) every language spoken in the old world of yore. Surely it is difficult to characterize what one gets to hear here as completely authentic. Because the musician expands her medieval influences by subtle excursions into pop. "An Hini A Garan" first sounds like the Highlands that have become sound, in "Garden District" the artist, completely emancipated, gives to the bards. And with the instrumental "Eirin" she pushes the door wide open to known, but also completely unknown worlds. And often wears a fool's cap.
