France (Centre France)

Based on the hurdy-gurdy/horn pairing, emblematic of the music of Centre France, La Machine offers a sinuous, hypnotic sound. The percussion/double bass pairing ensures an inimitable groove, a swaying rhythmic base with a hint of Afro-Cuban sounds. The voice, with its distinctive vibrato and timbre far removed from those usually attributed to trad voices, revisits the songs in a surprising way.

The words are ancient, but surprisingly current!
