5th edition of LOVE BAL ... to your hearts, ready ... go!
Great evening with 3 balls and 4 trad and neo / trad music groups.
The Ball of the Ephemeral
Cathy Donin: accordion and song
Gérard Thévenet: guitar and song
Raphaëlle Yaffee: violin and song
The "Bal de l'Ephémère" was born from the common desire to offer a repertoire to dance "trad" on original compositions and texts.
So, the "Ball of the Ephemeral", is it Trad? neo-trad? French song? world music? It's all of that, with the influences of each of the musicians and the particular care taken in the composition, arrangements and writing of the texts. At the ball of the ephemeral, we dance Mazurka, Circles, Scottish, Chapelloises, Waltzes ... An ideal introduction to a very Love ball!
Julien Padovani: Chromatic accordion, kick, Vocals
Christian Pacher: Violin, Diatonic accordion, Vocals
Robert Thébaut: Violin, Guitar, Vocals
Ciac Boum invites us to a Country Ball made of mainly Poitevin music (Center-West France) and compositions.
These three trad drivers send rounds, avant-deux, no summer, waltzes, market gardeners and other limousine balls ... as if their lives depended on it! … While respecting the spirit of dance they wear at their fingertips. And if sometimes a breeze of freshness and joyful freedom flies over the parquet floor, it is because the old melodies give off their scent of eternal youth.
Ciac Boum has a solid reputation with dancers in France and in Europe, as his singular music exudes cheerfulness, energy and celebration.
So, dancers, come and party, the Love Bal is yours!
The artistic boots
Guus Herremans: two-tone chromatic accordion
Pavel Souvandjiev: violin
The duo “Les Bottines Artistiques” comes from Belgium. With both classic and traditional training, our happy troubadours combine French and Italian technique (Guus) with Bulgarian influences (Pavel) to give us to hear beautiful and surprising dancing melodies that will wonderfully and magically suit our end. Love Bal! Let's put our feet in these artistic boots until the end of the night!
And in inter-sets, our friends from "Youk Trio" (Claire, Enzo and Pierre) will enhance our moments of waiting and restoration with their delicious and velvety music. Youk Trio is a revelation of intense sensations, coated with a voluptuous texture. A clarinet for the sweet; a second for the crunchy, and two guitars for the fondant. Accumulator of vital energy, a simple drop of Youk Trio, and presto! here we go again for a dance tour!
