For more than five decades, through song and music, I have been seeking harmony (not always Zen though), particularly in the relationships between different identities.

For me, this is firstly being just a human being, then a Breton and a Celt.

I have as much to share which is in common as I have to share which is different.

The new tracks express this directly.

The older ones (revisited), say so too, through what I have lived, my “river”. 

 

 

A Hed an Nos [All Through The Night] (Feat. Andrea Corr & OSB) - Clip

In a troubled time, a moment of calm, of comfort, a night where everything is still possible, a child's dream.
1000 thanks to you Andrea (+ OSB and Gilles Pensart) !

 

 

Tri Martolod ( new' ) - Clip

About 50 years now that I sing Tri martolod, and here is the first clip!
I am happy with this new collaboration with Francisca Lehner for its realization.…

 

 

 

Six extracts from the new album :
 

   Tri Martolod ( new' )
 
Alan Stivell lyrics »
At first, I did not think to sing, for the nth time Tri martolod !
But supposed to go around the house without this song, which was immediately acclaimed? Without an ultimate version?…
 
 
   DEN II (Simply Human)
( Feat. Bob Geldof )

 
Alan Stivell lyrics »
Remembering to be a human person is, for me, the first thing.
After the "preface" that had been the single Son archistr - Brocéliande, I wanted to show immediately that, if my approach to defense and illustration of Brittany …
 
 
   Reflets, Adskedoù, Reflections
( Feat. Murray Head, Robert Le Gall )

 
Alan Stivell lyrics »
My very first pro album (in 1970) was called "Reflets" eponymous of the opening song.
After the "preface" that had been the single Son archistr - Brocéliande, I wanted to show immediately that, if my approach to defense and illustration of Brittany and Celtic culture is central, I think it important that…
 
 
   BZHg   [ Emadvesk / Self-Remix ]
( Feat. Bob Geldof )

 
Alan Stivell lyrics »
In introduction to a new version of Brezhoneg raok, as I touch almost the same instruments as the electro scenes (since it was possible), I had fun with a self-remix that would not disown neither JM Jarre nor C2C. Since the end of…
 
 
   Com Una Gran Orquestra - Ideas
( Feat. Francis Cabrel, Claude Sicre, Lea Antona, OSB )

 
Alan Stivell lyrics »
For the verses, I take Noite peicha, which I recorded on a disc (A Galician in Brittany) by Carlos Nuñez (also present in the album).
I had written in Spanish, that Carlos had changed into Galician. This time, I'm singing in Breton and Catalan (taking a news that has been tirelessly present at my place since forever) thanks to the adaptation of Immaculada Fabregas…
 
 
   A Hed an Nos   ( All Through The Night )
( Feat. Andrea Corr & Orchestre Symphonique de Bretagne )

 
Alan Stivell lyrics »
This other dream duet with Andrea !
When I was 10 or 12, I heard this Welsh lullaby, thanks to the linguist François Vallée AbHerve, who translated it from Welsh, like many other celtic songs from over the channel and the celtic sea. English speaking children from all over the world knew …
 
 
   Son ar chistr  ( My Cheers To You ! )
( Feat. Angelo Branduardi  &  Dónal Lunny )

 
Alan Stivell lyrics »
Returning to this era (late 60s), does not mean leaving the present.
Several times in this album, I myself am a sampled virtual guest, coming from the 1970 of old times. …
 
 

 

 

To conclude, I return to my work, where I started by reinstalling a forgotten instrument (the Celtic harp), and then imagined prototypes of the future, integrated computer and electronics, without denying the Breton and Celtic heritage of course.
