Chapitre V

Chapitre V is my new favorite local band...not just local, but one of my new favorite groups of musicians. A totally successful mix of Correzien traditional music and ecletically surreal rock. They use the cornimuse, which is our local version of a bagpipe and the vielle, which is an ancient cranked hurdy gurdy type of instrument and accordion. These are the traditional instruments of Correzien traditional music. But there is also an incredible violinist, horn players, a mad guitarist who uses electric drills and effect boxes with abandon and a truly great bass player and drummer. They will release a recoding soon, but there are a few videos on YouTube to check out! Too bad you can't see them play live!
