Reaching its height in the 13th century, sirventès is a form of sung protest poetry which denounces its century's violences, powerful people's stupidity and describes human feelings' fugacity.
Sirventès perfectly embodies these poet-musiciens' soul, dived into their time, as troubadours so far from the expression of a courtly love.
Eight centuries later, a vigorous and passioned trio appropriates with enthusiasm this borderless protest poetry.
Grégory Dargent and Youssef Hbeisch lead with force and distinction Manu Théron's vocals in a renewed, bright and exalted interpretation of these timeless texts, arranged with audacity and character, transcending these poet-musicien's more than ever contemporary art.
Manu Théron : vocals
Grégory Dargent : oud
