The Breizh Amerika Collective continued to prepare for their upcoming musical collaboration in May 2015 by rehearsing on both sides of the Atlantic this weekend. Four Breton musicians (Armel an Hejer, Alain LeClere, Thomas Moisson, Gaetan Grandjean) met at Skol an Emsav in Rennes to work on new material incorporating Garifuna instruments and vocals.
At the same time recording and video was being produced with Garifuna musician, James Lovell, at the Endangered Languages Alliance offices in Manhattan, NY.
