Nolwenn 


A unique name and heritage, a French token and national emblemNolwenn Leroy brings us her self titled album Nolwenn with adaptations of traditional Celtic songs. As a French pop star and author-composer, native from the foreign land of Brittany, which was once an independent kingdom and later became a small province joined to the French Empire; it was no surprise that one day Nolwenn would make an album dedicated to the very roots that taught her the love of music.  

The album is a link between pop and Celtic music, but above all remains a tribute to the artists and melodies that created the songs. With a piercing gaze, she sings familiar songs from the past with a classical voice of the rarest kind. She could have been the girl from Tri Martolod, a traditional Breton song about three sailors who anchor at a shore and all fall in love with the same woman. Songs sung in Breton, she recalls memories of her heritage, a French heritage, a piece of European history revisited and remembered. She tells us stories like Brest and Mna na h-Eireann a tribute song with Gaelic lyrics written in the 18th Century for Irish women who fought along men for the independence of their country. Strength, perseverance and never forgetting where we come from are some of the themes present in Nolwenn, an album with songs like Ma Bretagne quand elle pleut, a song about a man who remembers his childhood and tells us what it was like to grow up in Brittany.
