Alvan & Ahez

Alvan is a multi-instrumentalist electro artist from the French region of Brittany; the same place vocal group Ahez hail from.

As an artist, Alvan loves to mix different genres within his own music, and despite his sound mostly being rooted in electronica, he also uses a lot of traditional chants and organic elements in his hybrid compositions.

Ahez (Marine, Sterenn and Stereen) are a traditional vocal group who aim to showcase their regional heritage through music, by writing and singing in their native language, Breton. In their songs, they tell contemporary stories that reference the ancient myths of Brittany.

Alvan & Ahez have made it known they want to show that tradition is not something stuck in the past; rather, it is constantly evolving.

Lyrics of Fulenn

Lalelala Lalaleno

Tan De‘i!

E teñvalijenn ar c‘hoadeier e tiwan an noz
Ar stered a deu war-wel en hiboud direpoz
Ur skeud benel a droidell ouzh skleurenn ur flamboz

Oc‘h ober fae deus ar fall loened e tañsan
Me bak an tan en o lagad leun a droukc‘hoant
Ha da dreiñ ‘n‘añ en ur c‘han da gan‘ a-unvan

Dañsal a ra gant an diaoul, ha petra?
Dañsal a ran gant an diaoul, ha petra?

Entan ha taras, entan jabadao ha taras
Trid‘ a ra ar c‘hoad ouzh stok‘ ar fulenn a-bilpaz
He hud dudius a bign betek penn ar gwez bras

Oc‘h ober fae deus ar fall loened e tañsan
Me bak an tan en o lagad leun a droukc‘hoant
Ha da dreiñ ‘n‘añ en ur c‘han da gan‘ a-unvan

Dispont ‘kreiz an digoadenn e tañs ar fulenn
Treiñ ha distreiñ en-dro dezhi eneoù dichadenn
Dispont ‘kreiz an digoadenn e tañs ar fulenn
Treiñ ha distreiñ en-dro dezhi eneoù dichadenn

Let‘s go!

In the darkness of the woods germinates the night
The stars appear in the restless rustle
A feminine shadow twirls in the light of a torch

Ignoring the wild beasts I dance
I steal the fire from their gaze full of lust
And turn it into a song to sing in unison

She dances with the devil, so what?
I dance with the devil, so what?

Heat and mud, heat, party and mud
The forest vibrates with the dancing spark
Its enchanting magic rises up to the tall trees

Ignoring the wild beasts I dance
I steal the fire from their gaze full of lust
And turn it into a song to sing in unison

Fearless in the middle of the forest clearing, the spark is dancing
Raging souls twirl and twirl around her
Fearless in the middle of the forest clearing, the spark is dancing
Raging souls twirl and twirl around her

Lalalalalalaleno lalelalo
Lalalalalalaleno lalelalo
Lalalalalalaleno lalelalo
Lalalalalalaleno lalelalo

I dance with the devil, so what?
With the devil I dance
She dances with the devil, so what?

Lalalalalalaleno lalelalo
Lalalalalalaleno lalelalo
Lalalalalalaleno lalelalo
Lalalalalalaleno lalelalo

Fearless in the middle of the forest clearing, the spark is dancing
