cd cover Bagad Men Ha Tan and Doudou N'diaye Rose
Dakar (L'Oz)

The ensemble writes of this work: "The music of « Doue Lann » was the framework for the encounter between the Bagad and the Senegalese percussionists of drum-master Doudou N’Diaye Rose. That show traveled throughout France in May and June 1998 and was an immense success. The encounter couldn’t stop there. Doudou N’Diaye Rose indeed wished to record this astonishing cross-cultural mix..."

Info from the record label:
In the spring of 98, the Bagad Men Ha Tan released their CD CD « Doue Lann » (L’OZ PRODUCTION – L’OZ 21 – distrib. naïve) with the double-bassist Henri Texier. The music written by Pierrick Tanguy paid homage to the little Finistère port of Doëlan and its fishermen.

The music of « Doue Lann » was the framework for the encounter between the Bagad and the Senegalese percussionists of drum-master Doudou N’Diaye Rose. That show traveled throughout France in May and June 1998 and was an immense success. The encounter couldn’t stop there. Doudou N’Diaye Rose indeed wished to record this astonishing cross-cultural mix before the 2000 tour. And we accomplished this in Dakar last April. Doudou N’Diaye Rose - Senegalese percussionists

Bagad MEN HA TAN
Composed of musicians who are also part of the best bagadou of Brittany (Locoal-Mendon, Quimper, Quimperlé, Saint-Nazaire), under the direction of Pierrick Tanguy, Men Ha Tan has taken up the vocation of disseminating original and lively music, of promoting encounters between different musical universes. This vocation corresponds to the current direction of Breton music in full evolution, which meanwhile holds fast to its roots.

Doudou N’DIAYE ROSE
Author of the national anthem of Senegal, and of most of the radio and television show theme music in his country, the Master Drummer of Dakar, Doudou N’Diaye Rose is a reference in African percussion. Living legend, solicited by the biggest musicians (Peter Gabriel, Dizzie Gillespie, Nina Hagen...), he is accompanied by a dozen drummers.

Pierrick TANGUY
Musical director and composer for the Bagad Kemperle for many years, Pierrick Tanguy has multiplied his musical experiences (Henri Texier, Louis Sclavis, Eric Marchand, Dan Ar Braz, Jacques Pellen, Kristen Noguès, Michel Godard, Aldo Romano, John Abercrombie, Steve Swallow, Joe Lovano, Paul Motian, Bill Frisel, Dewey Redman, Kenny Wheeler, Claude Barthélémy, Sylvain Kassap...). His compositions are played by many groups and bagadou.

Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America.

They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
