Born Jean-Frédéric Brossard on July 28, 1939, in Paris, Evgen Kirjuhel (meaning “high house” in Breton) is a composer, poet, guitar and metal harp player, and a versatile singer. He was a provocative troubadour during the May 68 protests in Europe and wrote the song “Ah! le joli mois de mai” in Paris, which supported the struggles of workers and peasants. Kirjuhel was a representative of the socially-engaged Breton song movement in the 1970s, but later became interested in the roots of Greek music. Drawing inspiration from Celtic tradition, blues, jazz, and flamenco, Kirjuhel creates a crystal-clear universe of music with multiple influences.
