Duo du Balcon
Duo du Balcon is a duo made up of the Congrega brothers, who have been jumping into the world of folk dancing and traditional music for around ten years. And for four years, they've been making us dance "funkttish" and "bluesurka" in this sparkling guitar project. Situated between Irish sounds and rock spirit, accentuated by energetic riffs or "Floydian" passages, this little duo has a whole universe to help you discover through a dance floor...
It is the great complicity of the two brothers which is at the origin, but also their common desire to play music with Irish sounds, influenced by the rhythms of traditional French dances and rock riffs.
This Neo Trad Guitar duo has given itself the mission of visiting balls, concert halls and bars in France and elsewhere to spread good humor and show that with two stringed instruments, you can make as much sound as possible. A traditional line up involving accordions, hurdy-gurdy, bagpipes and other powerful instruments!
