Anne Auffret

Whether singing a cappella or accompanying herself about Celtic harp, Anne Auffret has successfully resurrected the original music of Brittany. Regarding to Breton music mag Channing Ar Gall, “we pay attention to Anne Auffret as though we were hearing water dripping from a springtime in to the ferns. Her tone of voice is so accurate, her tone therefore clear and effective at exactly the same time that people may believe it originates from the beyond.” Delivered in the tiny Breton community of Bulat-Pestivien, Auffret released her musical profession with the discharge of the solo record, Kanennou Santel, in 1973. The record centered on the spiritual edges of her repertoire and included many traditional Breton hymns that continue being sung in rural churches. As the recording offered suggestions of her potential like a performer, Auffret didn’t record once again for almost 2 decades. Although she spent four years as an associate of the Milan-based music group, Alia Musica, the group proceeded to go unrecorded. In the first ’90s, Auffret started a cooperation with Breton vocalist Yann-Fanch Kemener that led to two unforgettable albums — Main Chants of Brittany, Vol. 4 in 1991 and Roue Gralon ni ho Salud! in 1993. She became a member of with Michel Guesquière and Jean Baron to record Sonj in 1991. 2 yrs later, she created a new music group, Kan Telenn, with harpers Hoëla Barbedette and Muriel Desfontaine.
