some musics ...
Camac : one of the cosy nests where are born and increase harps...
la Maison de la Harpe : a case for all the lovers of this "strange instrument"
Alan Stivell : Grand Master of the race harpist, father of inescapable album " the Renaissance of the Celtic Harp ", for the big lovers of the harp! Celtic musics and sweetness of the harp, but also interbreedings world, rock and alternative musics.
Denez Prigent : traditional Breton singing with cutting edge instrumentations, delicious one mixture served by an exceptional voice.
Lisa Gerrard : a bewitching voice which Lydwen remains ardent supporter for several years! It is no doubt largely "in cause" of her (see also Dead can Dance) that one day Lydwen dared the music. To discover absolutely and to consume without any moderation!
Muse : no report with the harp, any report with Brittany, and absolutely nothing to do with peaceful world of the fairies which Lydwen likes to tell, far from there! It is rock music , electric music, in brief savages music! Please be careful for your ears, that can slightly (very slightly) ruffle the hair!
Keane : another blow of heart of Lydwen in the pop-rock music.
