Before Bach chapter 2 is an atypical musical project between the rock blues of Rodolphe Burger, the traditional breton tone of Erik Marchand and the electric oud of Mehdi Haddab, the perfect example of cultural mixing.
The '' Before Bach chapter 2 '' project brings together Erik Marchand and Rodolphe Burger both share a taste for the unusual and the singular. Erik is a 'master' of Traditional Breton song with a well documented passion for the music of the Balkans. Rodolphe, rock and blues singer and guitarist, producer and creator of the band Kat Onoma and the label 'Derniere Bande '.
In their quest for unusual sounds and arrangements they launched the '' Before Bach '' project in 2004. A daring project to reveal the universitality of traditional music beyond the barriers of langage. The gamble has paid off and they have opened the doors to a new '' genre '' halfway between two worlds.
The album ''Glück Auf!'', enriched with rythm section, has taken them to a common ground, a new territory of expression where the well-honed modal music of Erik Marchand collides with Rodolphe Burger's rock and blues.
In 2019 the two return deeper again into the mines to extract new ideas, new exchanges projecting a new light on the relationship between Breton song and the energy of Rock and Roll.
