Review: Carnet de bal en Gascogne


Carnet de bal en Gascogne: Musiques traditionnelles de Gascogne jouées à la boha by Yan Cozian Like many regions of Europe, the last 40 or so years has seen a revival in interest in the traditions and culture of Gascony. With this came an increased desire to dance the old dances to the old tunes, using traditional instruments such as the boha. Starting in the 1970s, revivalists, including Yan Cozian, set about collecting traditional songs and dance tunes from the old players and so preserved a link with the past that was very nearly lost.
