New La Nef CD’s
ÎLES CD is now for sale
A concert of songs based on the texts of the women Troubadours and musical interludes based on the only Trobairitz melody that survives. Seán Dagher’s original music supports these songs about love, adultery, and the state of affairs of the day, critiques of the governments and the church. The candour and freedom expressed by the Trobairitz seems even more daring because they were women. It is surprising to see the point to which the concerns of the women and men who lived 800 years ago resemble so much ours concerns today.
Inspired by Makura no sōshi(The Pillow Book) by Lady Sei Shōnagon (Japan, around the year 1000), this CD offers a real interaction between music and poetry. Composition and improvisation are brought together to create original music influenced by Japanese aesthetics. Through different approaches - electronic, electric and acoustic music and poetry alternate, intercalate and blend to create a unique sound.
