Aronde is a balance between two strong identities, two musical universes : on one side Clémence Cognet and Noëllie Nioulou, on the other Thomas Baudoin and Romain Colautti, long time players of the traditionnal musics from Auvergne (Centre of France) and Gascony (South-west). Exploring two traditions looking distant, Aronde, mixing them with style, sounding natural.
Salvador Dali may have seen here the perfect illustration of his « Catastrophes series », with a touch of Terry Riley’s loops, looping and looping, drawing the outline of the music but never loosing its roots.
