The Gentle Good

Flying over a nest of music (Vol au-dessus d'un nid de musique)

52 min / Published

VIPop #17

Yet another treasure of British folk, and this time it's in Wales that we land with Gareth Bonello, aka The Gentle Good ... Sometimes sung in English, sometimes sung in Welsh, his songs have the power to transport us far away without apparent effort ... Being also an ornithologist, has Gareth Bonello developed by symbiosis some magical powers allowing his music to cross all the oceans like a majestic seagull ? ... To be continued ... In short, beauty and right words are here to be found ...

Encore un autre trésor du folk GB, et cette fois c'est au Pays de Galles que l'on se pose avec Gareth Bonello, alias The Gentle Good ... Tantôt chantées en anglais, tantôt chantées en gallois, ses chansons ont le pouvoir de nous transporter loin et cela sans effort apparent ... Etant également ornithologue, Gareth Bonello aurait-il développé par symbiose quelques pouvoirs magiques permettant à sa musique de traverser sans encombre tous les océans tel un goéland majestueux ? ... A suivre ... Bref, beauté et paroles justes sont ici au rendez-vous.
