L’ensemble “ No Tongues “ explore les traditions vocales de la planète afin d’élaborer un univers sonore particulièrement contemporain.
In the beginning was a record. Released in 1996, “Les Voix du Monde” brought together traditional songs from around the world. Matthieu Prual's father had it in his collection and the saxophonist passed on his fascination to trumpeter Alan Regardin and double bass players Ronan Courty and Ronan Prual, all good friends. Embracing free jazz, imaginary folklore and a sensitive, soft drone, this experimental quartet has embarked on a huge project to combine and cross-breed these voices from different places. The result? A trance which is organic, disturbing and timeless.
