Sonneurs & Hampus Lindwall (FR/SE)

The French bagpipe ensemble Sonneurs featuring Mickaël Cozien, Erwan Hamon and Guénolé Keravec with instruments from the Breton pipe tradition, and Hampus Lindwall, organ, performed the opening concert for GAS-festival 2022

About Sonneurs
With Sonneurs, artistic director Erwan Keravec – a highland bagpiper, composer and improviser – wished to explore the possibility of extending his ambition beyond his own instrument. To achieve this, he has set up a piping quartet that brings together the four instruments of the Breton piping tradition. Instrument wise, the quartet is made up of the historic bombard, the biniou koz, the Scottish bagpipe, which has become Breton over the last century, and the trelombard, invented to act as a counterpoint to the bombard and bagpipe. With these culturally-marked instruments, this quartet is characterised by its raw sound, rich tone colour, continuous biniou and bagpipe resonance, condensed spectrum and – obviously – powerful sound.
