Gaby Kerdoncuff

Line up

  • Gaby KERDONCUFF (Trompette / Buggle / Bombarde)


Player of the bombarde (breton oboe) from a very young age, Gaby KERDONCUFF studied breton music with the players and singers of Kan ha diskan in the centre of Brittany.
He then went on to work regularly with jazz musicians and taught himself the trumpet before becoming a professional musician in 1990.

Discovering oriental music very early on, he searched a link between oriental and breton music, which he discovered through his regular collaboration with tzigan musicians from the balkans and the middle east.
After 30 years of collaborations and 2 CD's to his name, Gaby KERDONCUFF continues, with his bombarde and trumpet, his resonant adventure from his celtic roots towards the many musical traditions in and around the mediterranean.
