PLANTEC - an untamed energy, wild and primitive dances, a completely immersive show with sounds from the 4 corners of the world….
Major representatives of contemporary Breton music and pioneers of ‘mapping’ or use of video.The group PLANTEC create a hybrid acoustic music - an artistic sound and vision based on original compositions whilst maintaining the ADN of tradition as their trademark, but adding a modern vision.
After the launch of their album KONTAKT in 2015, a cd/dvd of a live event recorded a the Interceltique Festival in Lorient in 2017, plus 200 concerts, tours in Europe, Africa and Asia, PLANTEC presented Hironaat (meaning hybrid in Breton), a new album of electronic trad music composed in Brittany with a limitless use of sounds.
The trio offer us a 12 track album which includes sung compositions, and guest musicians from Japan, Burkino Faso, Finland and Brittany.
With their powerful stage presence, the trio unites dancers of all generations in a ground-trembling, trance-like fusion. A ‘fest noz’ in four dimensions projecting the audience into a protean scenography and a heritage constantly re-experimenting its form.
Since 2016 the band includes projection mapping in the show. The stage is transformed in a virtual new world.
