Thibault Chaumeil from San Salvador: Occitan Vocal Power and Propulsive Percussion




Youthful French ensemble San Salvador revs up traditional Occitan-language troubadour songs by blending complex vocal polyphony with propulsive percussion. They've already wowed the cognoscenti at both the WOMEX (Europe) and globalFEST (US) world music showcases. Thibault Chaumeil of San Salvador joins us this week to introduce the group's wonderful debut studio album La Grande Folie and share the story behind the music.

Scott67, I rejoice when the cool season starts, usually November.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm Scott67:

Chresti, I'm a total Summer lover, anything below 20c is uncomfortable to me. It's 6c this morning. But I hope you get some rain & not extreme heat in California. Looking pretty dry & fire prone there now.
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 6:59pm chresti:

Thanks Scott67, yes, looks like a red flag warning summer is around the corner.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:02pm mariano:

Scott67: Complete opposite with me. I was raised in sub-tropical and tropical areas, lots of heat and (worst of all) humidity. My heaven would have a Pacific Northwest climate. Cool and misty year-round. Right now it's gorgeous in New Orleans though, last bit of spring before the humidity comes back. It's 80/27 with blue skies and a nice breeze.
Avatar 7:06pm TDK60:

I missed the town they're from in France. San Salvador?
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 7:07pm chresti:

That's my ideal climate too, Pacific Northwest, mariano.
Avatar 7:09pm TDK60:

It's similar to the Catalan language, right?
Avatar 7:12pm TDK60:

..or adjacent in the Romance family?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm mariano:

TDK60: Yeah. Historically, the Occitan region has bordered the Catalan region. If you know French and/or another Romance language you could read a bit of Occitan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm Scott67:

I could handle living in one of the Modernist cliff shacks around Big Sur. But would need to go South regularly to warm up & dry out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm Rob W:

TDK60 - they're from Saint-Salvadour, France - that's the French spelling of the Occitan San Salvador. Occitan is a romance language (as is Catalan).
Avatar 7:18pm TDK60:

Thanks mariano, Rob. I've looked at Catalan written and listened but not Occitan. / mariano, I lived some years in Pacific NW.
Avatar 👻 7:18pm Bas NL:

Knowing French i found Catalan somewhat understandable.

Great music by the way!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Rob W:

Thanks Bas, RR and everyone!
Avatar 7:22pm TDK60:

Hallo Bas! Knowing a bit of Spanish-written I can get a drift with Catalan. Written, to me it looks like Spanish & French combined (in a crude way of saying!). Yes, their music is great.
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 7:23pm chresti:

Like Basque?
Avatar 7:24pm TDK60:

Chresti those Vascos son differente completamente!
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 7:25pm chresti:

Ah, gracias TDK60.
Avatar 👻 7:26pm Bas NL:

Hi TDK60! Yes, seem feel here! I don't know Spanish though...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm mariano:

Bas NL: I had a great-uncle from Spain who lived part of the year in a Catalan-speaking area but never learned Catalan (though we have relatives in the area whose first language it is). He used to tease them, saying all you have to do to speak Catalan is chop off the last letters of Spanish words. "Un vaso de agua" is "Un vas d'ag" (not really, that's what he would say in jest).
Avatar 7:27pm TDK60:

Chresti, as far as I know Basque (Euskadi?) is unrelated to any other tongue.
Avatar 👻 7:32pm Bas NL:

@mariano I'd love to be able to speak Catalan! I once had a guided tour of a small church made by Gaudi. I was lead around by a very enthusiastic caretaker who showed and explained everything in beautiful Catalan. He even showed Gaudi's bill for the building. An experience to never forget.
Avatar 7:34pm TDK60:

This is driving. Just vocals and percussion, si?
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 7:35pm chresti:

The population in Saint-Salvador was 297 in 2018.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm Rob W:

Just vocals and percussion. As for Saint-Salvador - I don't think they all live there - I didn't actually ask why they chose that village specifically for the name - I'll have to ask, if I can lure them to WFMU sometime in the future!
Avatar 👻 7:42pm Bas NL:

Ah, great! I just found all lyrics are included in the bandcamp release.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm mariano:

Yeah, Basque is a descendant of a language that was spoken in the area before the Europeans themselves arrived, very ancient language.

Bas NL: That sounds like a lovely tour.
Avatar 7:46pm TDK60:

Just looked on Wickedpea. Occitan was also called: Limousin or Provençal -mostly in the past.
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Wow, that was great!
Avatar 👻 7:53pm Bas NL:

Old France had a fantastic mix bag of languages and dialects. en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm Rob W:

Glad you liked it K from HP!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01pm mariano:

Bas NL: Yeah, the reason French became the dominant language has to do with politics and the vagaries of history (same with standard Italian and Spanish/Castilian). As the French state expanded, the language expanded with it and other languages were marginalized, leading to erroneous notions such as Occitan being a dialect of French.
Avatar 8:03pm TDK60:

Yikes, they were great, lots of energy.
Avatar 👻 8:08pm Bas NL:

I guess emperors and television have snuffed out marginal languages. At the time people in France were not able to understand their neighboring languages. Not that much happened to talk about probably. I once heard the peoples from Normandy even stayed in bed during the winter months.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm Rob W:

Ah yes Bas emperors and television, always a fatal combination!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm mariano:

Lol, then I must be part Norman, though I don't need cold weather to stay in bed.
Avatar 8:12pm TDK60:

I think Franco in his reign in Spain banned Catalan in education.
Avatar 👻 8:13pm Bas NL:

And i think the concept of a 'cookie' is from Normandy. A dry biscuit to survive on, next to your bed.

Catalunya is in the news at the moment. Local politicians have proposed (another) people's vote on independence of the region. Madrid is not happy with this move.
