Caution, high voltage! With two electric harps, percussions and live electronics Descofar gives traditional celtic music a fresh new glance. Still deeply rooted in celtic music patrimony they exploit the resources of electricity to give the harp and breton dance music a new sound panorama. Descofar thus take the tradition in its most living form, as a moving and always creative matter.
From Ireland, Scotland, Brittany (or farther) they play dance tunes, laments and songs with a new sound color, mixing traditionnal music with post-rock and free impro. They are a fantastic example of how the lever harp, in its most modern form, is at the heart of traditional music culture today : beautiful, varied and very much alive.
