Nolwenn Leroy, Bro Gozh Ma Zadoù [Breton: "Old Land Of My Fathers"], the anthem of Britanny
An obscure find, but I just think it's a stirring tune. I like ethnic tribalism, things that bring a people together with a common, blood-based identity. There's something beautiful and transcendent about it. Some things should be
beyond money and other transient attributes. It's an old idea, but still worthy I think. Incidentally, when listening to this, it struck me how much Breton sounds like Welsh (I've encountered quite a few Welsh speakers). If I'm not mistaken,
I think the original composer of the song was even Welsh.
