Ten artists have contributed to Elva. Seven musicians: Tristan Le Govic (Celtic harp & vocals), Lise Enochsson (vocals), Stuart Macpherson (bass), Roy Shearer (drums), Per Nord (drums), André Le Meut (bombarde) and Pascal Lamour (biniou). To this list, we gladly add Olle Grane (mixing and mastering), Johann Guillon (graphics) and Erik Enochsson (photos). Ten instruments can be heard: Celtic harp, two voices, bass, drums, tabla, udu, derbuka, bombarde and biniou. Though the album wasn't recorded in ten days – as one might expect when you start a list of recurring numbers – but rather in a much longer period, however, it has been realized in ten different places in Brittany, Scotland and Skåne (Sweden).
In one week, the 30th edition of the Dinan Rencontres Internationales de Harpe Celtique will be launched (see the post dedicated to this subject). The artistic director and founder of the festival, Myrdhin, gave us an interview in which he talks about the creation of the Rencontres, the important years and the present edition.
