traduction from French ;
Belgian Polyphony. Belgium sometimes sends us of atypical artists whose charm attains fast the heart of the public . It was the case of Arno and Deus in a style more rock, or of Starflam for the hip hop. This time, honour to the ladies with the trio of vocal Polyphonies Laïs. Dorothea, their second album, constituted by traditional songs or of original compositions is interpreted in Flamish and in French
These three crystalline voices coated with a resolutely modern production transcend pieces that they had no more habit to hear around fires of camps néo - babas.
Music and voice of these three Flemish young persons is really envoutante and magical. In the descendants of their first album, also wonderful 'Dorothea ' takes back the same tones and the same animation of music and voices. The old Flemish language however rather harsh becomes there singsong and harmonious... Deeply ' Live '...
Lais is a Belgian girls' vocal trio. Many of their songs are catchy and intricate old folksongs, but all songs are subtly modernized. The musical arrangements are never overproduced, so they don't take away the attention from Lais' strongest feature: the voices. The songs show off the incredible beautiful voices of the three girls, their voices weaving together in soothing or bittersweet harmonies.
Being from two-tongued Belgium, between the Netherlands and France, Lais sings both in Flemish and French, with occasionally some other languages thrown in, like Rumanian or Finnish, when they try their hand at another culture's multi-vocal singing.
Lais keeps developing itself, and every album pulls off some more virtuose singing then the last. "Lais" is their first album, and a good one to start with.
Melodies are very nice and entrainantes. Voices are splendid. Recommend Folk music for all music amateurs....
