Salmanazar


We are pleased to welcome back our old friends Salamanazar to kick start the New Year.
These three musicians explore the roots of their respective instruments (hurdy-gurdy, diatonic accordion, bagpipe) - giving them a new dimension. The character of their music, sometimes solar, sometimes lunar, is always appropriate with the rhythms of dance of the Western Europe being the basis of the repertoire of this new trio. You are a keen dancer? Then come to discover SALMANAZAR! The drones of the hurdy-gurdy and the bagpipe create a mesmerizing atmosphere while the accordion leads the dynamics; all these ingredients harmonize to emphasize melodies giving pleasure of ears, soul and whole body...

Vous êtes danseur professionnel ? Alors venez découvrir SALMANAZAR !
