Kreiz Breizh Akademi, 7th collective
an expended bagad under influences

It was in the air for a long time, Kreiz Breizh Akademi chose the "expanded" bagad * as the basic expression of this 7th collective. In contact with artists from the world, artisans of the contemporary or traditional modality, India, the Middle East, the Balkans, jazz KBA # 7 bagad has built a unique "sound" where modal improvisations mingle with complex rhythmic and local themes sometimes so close to other modal world musics.

Under the artistic direction of Erik Marchand, with the sponsorship of famous bombards master André Le Meut, and thanks to the talents of instrument maker Tudual Hervieux, the KBA # 7 collective plays vocal and instrumental themes from the Vannes region and the Center Brittany, brought to us by great performers of Breton popular music : Herri Rumen, the Goadec sisters, Le Gall and Le Nouveau, Christian and Catherine Duro, Eleonore Provost ...
This musical repertoire is punctuated by improvisations related to these themes and compositions or arrangements proposed by the musicians of the collective and by the numerous artists who have contributed to the KBA vocational training :
Fawaz Baker, Samir Kurtov, Jesse Bannister, Titi Robin, Sylvain Kassap, François Corneloup, Mehdi Haddab, Yom, Iyad Haimour, Naisam Jalal ...
A journey bonding diverses modal music cultures from Breton traditions to Bulgarian-Macedonian, Indian or Syrian sounds.

*A bagad is a Breton band, composed of bagpipes, bombards and drums. A bagad plays mainly Breton music, but a bagad’s music is evolutionary: new forms and musical ideas are experimented with at each annual national competition.
