Info o umelcovi Sirventès
Present from the beginning of Trobar (the poetry of the troubadours), the sirventès is a protesting style of poetry that describes the violence of its century, the stupidity of powerful people and the fleetingness of human feelings. It is a difficult exercise where the poet makes a fool of the princes, laughs at the Church and questions the Creator, giving him friendly advice as well as merciless criticisms. Three musicians chose to honour – by developing them or being inspired by them – the original melodies deposited in the end of the XIIIth century by the last troubadours. The band is composed of Manu Théron (vocals), Grégory Dargent (oud – arrangements), and Youssef Hbeish (percussions).
