One of the standouts from KEXP’s 2019 Trans Musicales broadcast, San Salvador is a six-piece vocal and percussion ensemble that sings in the Occitan language of rural Southern France. Although very few can understand the literal meaning of their words, the cascading vocal harmonies and rhythms convey a poetic message that is boundary-less.

The hypnotic performance was recorded at La Chapelle in Rennes, France.

Recorded 12/08/2019.

  1. Efans de la campagna
  2. La Grande Folie
