Occitan Folk Music
Folk musicians at an Occitan Festival
Last week there was a Occitan folk festival in the nearby villages of le Pujol-sur-Orb, Colombières-sur-Orb, Vieussan and Olargues ("Mai que Mai"). Our choir sang some Occitan songs to entertain people on a "randonée". These two musicians were present too. They are playing a "Vielle à roue" (Hurdy-gurdy) and a "Hautbois".
