Eight days before Eurovision, Alvan & Ahez unveiled the clip for their song Fulenn. In Turin, they will represent France with a title in Breton.
For Alvan & Ahez, it’s the home stretch. On May 14, the Breton group will represent France at the Eurovision Song Contest, which takes place this year in Turin. A few weeks ago, they were the ones who were acclaimed by the public of France 2, fan of their title, Fulenn. After having prepared diligently, Alvan & Ahez unveiled the official clip of their song, this Friday, May 6, just over a week before Eurovision. To stick to this title in Breton, the group chose a very dark Celtic decor. We thus discover them playing and singing Fulenn in the middle of the forest alongside a young woman dancing near a fire. And if Fullen’s clip is shot in red hues, Alvan & Ahez have chosen a green atmosphere for the staging that they will unveil on the Turin stage.
This staging will pay tribute to a Breton legend, that of Katell Kollet. “France has a stage with a bit of greenery, which goes very well with the overall theme of the arena. The mix of dancing and folk and traditional instruments in this song really works!”reacted the organizers of the famous competition on Twitter, in the caption of four photos of the formation. As reported 20 minutesAlvan & Ahez will wear black outfits, created by stylist Pascal Jaouen, and will be surrounded by dancer Soleïla Chaou. “The scenography will involve an imitation stone podium, pyrotechnics (two braziers and flames erupting rhythmically on the basses) and graphic projections on the ground”adds our colleagues.
Alvan & Ahez: “Breton is a very beautiful language and it’s ours”
As a reminder, the Alvan & Ahez group is made up of Marine Lavigne, Sterenn Diridollou, Sterenn Le Guillou and Alexis Morvan. If the three girls are used to singing in Breton, it was a first for the young man. “We created this song together, we sent it to the French selection for Eurovision saying to ourselves: ‘Why not? We try.’ And then we’re going to Turin. We’re going to represent our region, we’re going to represent France, it’s just incredible.”, they confided to 20 Minutes after their victory at Destination Eurovision. Sterenn Le Guillon added: “Our objective, the challenge we wanted to take up by sending this song innocently to the casting, was to show that we can mix Breton with very modern sounds., that it’s a language that has its place in music, in competitions like that, on television, everywhere. It is a language in its own right. It’s a very beautiful language and it’s ours.”
