Jeanne Cherhal - site officiel Electropop Electropop is a pop-oriented form of electronic music primarily consisting of the use of synthesizers. The genre has seen a revival of popularity and influence since the late 2000s. "Electropop" is the short form of "electronic pop". The term was used during the 1980s to describe a form of synthpop characterized by an emphasized electronic sound — often described as cold and robotic — and by minimal arrangements. This was mainly due to the limitations of the analog synthesizers and recording techniques used at the time, but has since become a stylistic choice. Electropop laid the groundwork for a mass market in chart-oriented synthpop. Electropop songs are pop songs at heart, often with simple, catchy hooks and dance beats, but differing from those of electronic dance music genres which electropop helped to inspire — techno, house, electroclash, etc. — in that songwriting is emphasized over simple danceability.

Celtic music Celtic music is a broad grouping of musical genres that evolved out of the folk musical traditions of the Celtic people of Western Europe. It refers to both orally-transmitted traditional music and recorded music and the styles vary considerably to include everything from "trad" (traditional) music to a wide range of hybrids. Often the melodic line moves up and down the primary chords in so many songs. There are a number of possible reasons for this: Melodic variation can be easily introduced. These two latter usage patterns may simply be remnants of formerly widespread melodic practices. Often, the term Celtic music is applied to the music of Ireland and Scotland because both lands have produced well-known distinctive styles which actually have genuine commonality and clear mutual influences. Divisions Alan Stivell at Nuremberg, Germany, 2007 Forms Festivals The Celtic music scene involves a large number of music festivals. Massed pipers at the Lorient festival

The vast majority of traditional Irish flute players use a wooden, simple-system flute. Although it was, and is, played in every county in Ireland, the flute has a very strong heartland in the mid-western counties of Sligo, Leitrim and Roscommon, with South Fermanagh, East Galway, Clare and West Limerick also having a reputation. §Physical characteristics The flute has six main finger-holes. Wooden flutes have a cylindrical bore in the head and a conical bore in the body. There is some confusion with modern players in that a modern Boehm keyed system flute is typically pitched in C.

Synthpop Synthpop (also known as technopop) is a genre of popular music that first became prominent in the 1980s, features the synthesizer as the dominant musical instrument. It was prefigured in the 1960s and early 1970s by the use of synthesizers in progressive rock, electronic art rock, disco and particularly the "Krautrock" of bands like Kraftwerk. It arose as a distinct genre in Japan and the United Kingdom in the post-punk era as part of the new wave movement of the late-1970s to the mid-1980s. In the late 1980s, duos such as Erasure and Pet Shop Boys adopted a sound that was highly successful on the US dance charts, but by the end of the decade synthpop had largely been abandoned. The genre has received criticism for alleged lack of emotion and musicianship; prominent artists have spoken out against detractors who believed that synthesizers themselves composed and played the songs.

Fréhel (chanteuse) Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Pour les articles homonymes, voir Fréhel. Fréhel Portrait de Fréhel qui se nommait alors Pervenche en 1908. Fréhel, de son vrai nom Marguerite Boulc'h, née à Paris, au numéro 2 du boulevard Bessières, le 13 juillet 1891, et morte dans cette même ville le 3 février 1951, était une chanteuse qui a marqué la période de l'entre-deux-guerres. Marguerite est la fille d'un couple de bretons originaire de Primel-Trégastel, hameau de la commune de Plougasnou (Finistère). Son répertoire « réaliste » commence à la faire connaître entre 1908 et 1910. En 1925, l'« inoubliable inoubliée » remonte sur les planches de l'Olympia pour le plus grand plaisir d'un public qui ne se lasse pas de ses couplets réalistes. Le 30 avril 1935, elle épouse à Paris Georges Boettgen. En 1950, Robert Giraud et Pierre Mérindol inviteront Fréhel à se produire devant le public parisien dans une ancienne salle de bal, les Escarpes, située près de la place de la Contrescarpe.
