Ad Vielle Que Pourra - Musaïque (1993 Canada) @320

.
Ad Vielle Que Pourra's third album pushes the boundaries of traditional French music even further into international waters. The twelve tunes and songs combine elements of French country music, Russian Gypsy polkas, syncopated Quebecois pieces, and languid Venezuelan waltzes, with vocals in both the French and Occitan languages. All the tunes and songs on Musaique are band originals, with instrumentation ranging from medieval hurdy-gurdy, bombarde and bagpipes to Japanese sakuachi, fiddle and accordion. Fueled by electric bass and drums, some of the tunes conjure up images of Malicorne meeting the Ventures: an all-new world-beat edge!
