Biography

One of the challenges of Kreiz Breizh Akademi is to experiment with new forms of musical accompaniment, taking into account the musical scales used by Breton singers and ringers.

The gwerzioù and kan ha diskan are this time accompanied by a string orchestra supported by electronic rhythms, ranging from electro-acoustic experiments to dark and industrial beats.

Six professional musicians from different backgrounds: jazz, electro, ancient music, noise, tradition from Ireland, Poitou, Auvergne or Brittany… invest a new field of modal orchestral experimentation.

The repertoire based on the sung tradition of low Brittany has been arranged by the musicians of the collective under the artistic direction of Krismenn with the help of multiple international artists from modal music or electronic music such as Bachar Mar Khalife, Simo Cell, Hélène Labarrière, Titi Robin, Ollivier Mellano, Erik Marchand and many others.
