"Imagine a red haired Celt from Brittany, just out of a Broceliande tale, with a voice that hovers somewhere between the high registers of Kate Bush, the purity of Sinead O Connor and the mysticism of Enya and you’ll have a good idea what this remarkable young harpist, arranger of traditional songs and original songwriter sounds like.”

Singer and Harpist Cecile Corbel was born in Brittany, in the Finistère, at the very west of Europe. In her teens, after learning the guitar, she discovered the Celtic harp. The young Breton composer and singer now shares her « pop folk Celtic » music with her musicians in France and abroad.
