ba.fnu & Yann-Fanch Kemener
YFK-2016 (artist release)
cdRoots Code: rwr-bafnu
The Czech band meets Breton singer Yann-Fańch Kemener. ba.fnu have an affinity for both Czech and other European styles, but especially Breton fest-noz tunes. Yann-Fańch Kemener supplies the Breton vocals distinguished by a call-and-response pattern, that accompanies dancing. The musicians largely work with tracks that Kemener collected, while three of the tracks feature modern lyrics. The whole work is conceived as a mini-wall calendar that flips open on a spiral binder: inside, there are twelve block prints (the 'months' of the calendar) and statements which add up to a larger picture.

Please note!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. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
