So Close So Far. On one hand our musical traditions are very close. On the other hand there are thousands of miles between us! But., since the very first day we met. differences quickly vanished and let place to a strong friendship and understanding.. Musicians from the Atlantic shore met their double from the “crown of the world”. Strongly, this feeling of human and musical friendship became the headline for this album. We pray for this musical & stage partnership is only a first step, from Brittany to Nepal, with love. This project started with the help of Eric LEOST. This is wonderful to share feeling from the “Crown of the world” in Himalaya, and Penn Ar Bed (Head of the World in Breton language) Brittany, France.

Yves Ribis & Bijaya Vaidya
