Although I'm not a die-hard fan of Celtic music, this is a beautiful album with a modern, more "electric" feel to it. Dan Ar Braz assembled a group of top-notch musicians from Brittany and the British Isles, who perform a mix of songs with vocals as well as instrumentals. For me, the album's high points are "Language of the Gael" [Cànan Nan Gàidheal] (sung in Gaelic by Karen Matheson) and the hauntingly sparse duet "Me zo ganet e kreiz ar mor" ['I was born in the midst of the ocean'] (sung in Breton by Yann Fanch Kemener and Gilles Servat).
Dan Ar Braz's electric guitar work is understatedly elegant; there are flashes which show his edgier, blues-rock chops. When the album was released in 1994, it surprised everyone by selling 100,000 copies in over 10 countries.
I was originally given this on cassette by a penpal from Brittany, and have fond memories of listening to it on my Walkman. The album holds up to repeated listening; it has the power to transport you to a different place and culture.
