Information from a concert performed (when???) with the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra:

Clément Janinet: violin
Michel Sikiotakis: flute and saxophone
Khiliff Miziallaoua: guitar
Eric Rakotoarivony: bass
Hervé Le Bouché: drums
Amar Chaoui: percussion

In its relatively short career, Thalweg has brought together, with impeccable
originality, the traditions of the sun and the desert with those of rain, fog and
leafy woods, the south Mediterranean with the landscapes of the North Atlantic. With this apparently antagonistic fusion of cultures, the members of Thalweg have brought together words, melodies, rhythms and sonorities of such diverse origins that would otherwise seem irreconcilable. An idea that combines Celtic melodies with subtle hybrids from jazz and other popular music, and is finally spiced with the joy and vitality of Berber rhythms.

The problem is the download link, not the password.
I couldn't find my copy, so, can you re-up this, please?

If you remove in the address line the second https// the site is given with the Thalweg download.

Thank you Jonty. My computer is down. I don't know whether I can edit my post to remove the extra https.
