MÉLISANDE [électrotrad]

Mélisande [électrotrad] revisite la chanson traditionnelle francophone avec un son actuel et une perspective féminine moderne. Mené par Mélisande (voix principale, guimbarde, guitare électrique) et son complice Alexandre de Grosbois-Garand (flûte en bois, basse, voix, programmation), le projet propose une musique énergique aux influences trad, pop et électro livrée avec une riche instrumentation, des harmonies vocales et de la programmation. Mélisande recherche et adapte avec passion les chansons traditionnelles et les interprète avec liberté et fraîcheur. Alexandre met à profit son bagage musical et ses talents de multi-instrumentiste pour donner à ces chansons une couleur électrotrad. Leur proposition artistique originale et respectueuse de la tradition est en train de faire sa place sur la scène musicale francophone et folk-world-trad.

TRAD.ATTACK!

TRAD.ATTACK! are three good friends and well-known Estonian musicians Sandra, Jalmar and Tõnu who have literally turned Estonian folk music on its head.

Since their debut in 2014 TRAD.ATTACK! received 13 Music Awards in Estonia, released EP and full album. They performed in 19 countries and sold out solo concert for 1400 people in Estonia.

Surrounded by traditional music all her life, Sandra first picked up the Estonian bagpipe when she was thirteen. Jalmar is of the Seto people. Setomaa, a small community in the south of Estonia, has its own a king and distinctive culture, and is particularly well known for its traditional singing. His great grandmother, Anne Vabarna, was one of the most famous Estonian folk singers, so he has grown up in this tradition. Tõnu's father was the conductor of a brass orchestra, so Tõnu was playing brass before he could walk. He took up classical trombone and drums, and is now one of the most in-demand drummers in Estonia.

Trad.Attack! takes its inspiration from old archive recordings of Estonian traditional songs. Whereas Folk-Music is their starting point but not their boundary: they remain open in ears, mind and soul to different styles and new directions whilst maintaining their emotional roots-heart. Trad.Attack! is fresh folk music - friendly, passionate, powerful, dynamic, cheerful and true to the roots.
