Lo Còr de la Plana from Marseille sings a dozen songs in Provençal Occitan that are not devoid of humor, sometimes dramatic like Fanfarnèta, anonymous texts of the traditional repertoire sung in polyphony, a lament with medieval accents, without instruments. The rest are songs of joy, of the refusal of small life and praise of laziness. With instruments such as the tambourine, trumpet, tuba, oboe and clattering hands. Tant deman (maybe tomorrow), the first piece, a catchy ‘Farandole’: “Maybe tomorrow who knows? We are in no hurry”. CD. Tant deman – Lo Còr de la Plana. Label: Buda Musique (2007). VIDEO
