Arty Vesna As a percussionist myself i really admire intricate weaving of rhythmic phrases in this beautiful music. Also those vocals float so ... naturally between classical and folk.

Quatre voix de femmes espiègles. Des polyphonies wallonnes élégantes et frappées. Des percussions brutes faites de baguettes, de brindilles et de poutres.
Pour leur second album « Gote d’Èwe », les crapôdes s’accompagnent du percussionniste Max Charue. Ensemble, ils plongent dans les complaintes et les histoires juteuses des peuples de Wallonie. Leurs arrangements sont inspirés et empruntés tantôt à la musique baroque, tantôt à la musique moderne. Les styles se tordent et s’entrechoquent à la Björk ou Arvo Pärt. Et si rien n’est laissé au hasard, c’est que l’enjeu est de taille : les musicien·ne·s ravivent une tradition de chant incomparable qui en deux générations seulement a bien failli tomber dans l’oubli.
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.
