An other shot of Celtic Nations Parade last sunday at the Interceltic Festival of Lorient in the south of Brittany. Dancing in groups is a major element of traditional culture of Brittany. A lot of dancers dance in circles, groups of dancers that make traditional dances shows. Actually the women on the picture are members of the Kerlenn Pondi circle, a circle from the small city of Pontivy in the center of the Morbihan department. Moreover the circles, a lot of dance addicts dance every week end in festoù noz, the plural for fest noz. A fest noz ("night festival" in breton language) is a traditional breton festival with dancing in groups and live musicians playing traditional music with acoustic instruments. They attract people of every age. The fest-noz was recently added by the Unesco to the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. You can see a lot of circles dancing on the Celtic Nations Parade in Lorient festival. They are dressed with their traditional costumes and hats. But I will talk you about this an other time !

Hi Olivier. The Celts are alive and kicking, as the Anglo expression goes, despite centuries of repression. It is wonderful to see such joy and pride. Long live the Celtic nations, their poets, musicians, writers and their people. The embroidery on the black dress is an eye catcher as well.Lovely moment under the sun. Regards. Klaudio.

Ces jeunes danseuses de Pontivy sont charmantes et sont fières de leur costume. Jolie prise.

de belles robes et un intéressant cadrage avec cet alignement et un bon focus sur un des visages, parfaite netteté et bonne luminosité pour valoriser ces tenues traditionnelles.
