So here’s the song that will carry the beat of the runners along the Redadeg route in 2018 :
Betek an trec’h : "Towards Victory", like the slogan of Che Guevara », confided the three young singers to the journalist from the Télégramme, recently.
The trio is made up of Marine Lavigne, Aude Moalic and Sterenn Le Guillou.
The song’s theme : The importance of keeping the Breton Language alive, running to pass the baton of the language.
Composed by Brendan De Roeck from the duo Bobby & Sue, this energetic piece, with it’s latin american sounds, regroups a dozen musiciens with several brass instruments.
An opportunity to merge Breton with the rhythm of Cuban music.
An opportunity to make the Breton language, a vector of sharing and of mixing genres, colours and tones.
Get ready to dance the Salsa on the roads!

To hear the other groups again :

ARVEST has been touring the roads of Brittany and elsewhere, for more than 15 years. Known for their communicative energy, the group combines tradition and modern music.

Manaig Thepaut
A pretty gentle voice, a rousing rhythm, with originality: a recipe that has proven itself and that animates the song.

Skol Diwan Brest Gwelmeur
An ambitious project for the Diwan Brest Gwelmeur school, to have the children sing with professional musicians, in defending the colours of the Redadeg all with a rock beat.

Jean-Luc Roudaut
The song « Ha n’out ket skuizh ? » was invented by Armelle Crignou, and suggested to the pupils of the Diwan Brest school and to Jean-Luc Roudaut !
