|AORLHAC L’ESPRIT DES VENTS Limited Vinyl 2LP Set
Aorlhac look back to the past, to their Occitan roots,, narrating the History of the south of France and north of Italy and Spain. Occitan is not only a language but also a culture recounted in French by the band as respectful witnesses of their ancestors’ heritage.
L’esprit des vents, third album from the trilogy started with La Croisée des Vents (2007) and followed by La Cité des Vents (2010), marks the band’s return after 8 years of discographic absence and 10 years of existence. The album is built on a desire for continuity, yet st the same time a will to break with what has been done. With a more elaborate sound and assumed maturity, the band once again write about local, regional and occitan legends and tales, but also the stories of famous smugglers or belligerent figures from French history.
