A redhead fairy, just out of a Broceliande tale, (…) eternal vibrations, powerful culture, charismatic personnality" La terrasse Octobre 2006
Singer and composer Cécile Corbel was born in Brittany, the Celtic region in the north-west of France.
As a child, she travels all over Brittany with her parents, who were puppeteers.
In her teens, after learning the guitar, she discovered the Celtic harp.
Aged 18, she then moves to Paris.
After a few years performing in Parisian streets, pubs and cafés, she self-produces her first album, soon distributed by the most important French Celtic label Keltia Musique (Sinead O'Connor, Loreena Mc Kennit). 3 years after this first work, she now releases her second, full-scale album, "SongBook 1", inviting the musicians who followed her during these years.
"Corbel belongs to this new generation of European folkies, she is happy to take crusty old folk standards and reinvent them for the 21st-century audience" Sydney morning Herald - February - 2007
C.C. mirrors her singing, limpid, fragile, but confident. She draws her inspiration from the Breton tradition, from Breton laments and magic tales. - Liberation - 14 dec. 2006
