The law of the honeysuckle of Marie de France founds the French poetic tradition; it is inspired by a Breton lai, just like the Nightingale's Law, which De la Villemarque will collect in its Breton form, Ann Eostik, … eight centuries later. A testimony of the link between Breton tradition and medieval Breton lisa which Marie de France had echoed. Because the Breton lais are close to the gwerziou, these lyrical narrative songs that we still know today in Brittany.

Journalist Oruj Defoite was brought up in Ebbw Vale. On this journey home, she investigates why people there voted so heavily in favour of leaving the EU. Blaenau Gwent has benefitted from European investment in many ways. So what led voters to turn their backs on the EU? And what future now for this once-booming steel town? Can a big incoming project such as the proposed circuit of Wales racetrack alleviate poverty which dogs the area? Or should Ebbw Vale look to its own entrepreneurs to build it up again from the grassroots?
Talk to any connoisseur of '70s-era double live albums, and many will agree that Steve Hillage's Live Herald, recorded and released in 1977-1978, rates among the finest jewels that the genre has to offer. So it's astonishing to discover that someone has spent the last 25 years sitting on tapes that knock that set into the dust, both in terms of on-stage excitement and aural enjoyment. Live at Deeply Vale Festival '78 transports the listener back to one of the last truly great festivals staged in the U.K. that decade, a weekend's worth of music that fearlessly ranged across both the traditional rock range and the upcoming punk movement, before climaxing with a Hillage set that the guitarist himself reflects…
Following the demise of Viking/folk-themed black metal band Mithotyn in 1999, Swedish guitarist/bassist Stefan Weinerhall and drummer Karsten Larsson took a right turn toward power metal with their next project, Falconer, whose studio lineup was initially completed by accomplished stage actor and singer Mathias Blad.

Cool! Enjoy!
