hanter dro 05:27
1338 babies were born during this song
pourlet 04:38
to a world in crisis
scottish 05:24
run only by greed and money
where political trials
tamm kreiz 02:09
ruin lives with lies
people rob each other
pach pi 04:22
in a way too surreal to be captured by words
lariden 05:42
and where people cry for help
only to get hate in return
polka 04:31
because many pay for the sins of the few
fransez 06:08
even though we are all alone after all
luskellerez 02:59
Yet they will fall asleep every night having faith in us


Legendary voice of Brittany/Bretagne meets Czech electro bal folk. Album about our love for tradition and fear of the future. And vice versa.
