The first tune is a famous Co.Clare tune which I heard from Liam O'Flynn, the second one comes from a recording of the Lennon Family and the last one
is the very first tune I composed out of a newly received flute, made from cocus wood by my friend maker Stephane Morvan. cocus is the blackwood of Jamaica,
simply the best wood to make wooden flutes! Unfortunately almost impossible to find now as the tree is almost exctinct. On this one, I got Dónal Lunny and Paul
McSherry to play together which made one of my dreams come true!

"Sylvain Barou, the breton flute phenomenon, released this solo album in April 2012, he describes it a log book of the work of the last 10 years. Breton and irish music are well represented of course, but Middle eastern influences also bring colors to this magnificent release. A true masterpiece for a debut solo album" ... more
