La Crapaude


Four women, four impish voices. Walloon polyphony, elegant and edgy. Raw percussion made of sticks, twigs and beams.
For their second album “Gote d’Èwe”, the crapôdes are accompanied by the percussionist Max Charue. Together they dive into the laments and juicy stories of the people of Wallonia. Their arrangements are inspired by baroque music as much as by modern music. Their styles mingle and collide together such as an echo from Björk or Arvo Pärt. Nothing is left to chance because the stakes are high: the musicians are reviving a unique tradition of songs which has almost disappeared into oblivion in the last two generations.
