Our traditions
Our dancers perform to the sound of traditional instruments as accordion, "boudègue" and "graïle". Some more modern instruments complete our orchestra : clarinet, transverse flûte, percussion, giving emphasis to our music.
The term "boudègue" derives directly from the Occitan "bota" meaning bag. This is made with a whole goat's skin. It was the tradition to kill the animal during the old winter moon, choosing a female goat rather than a male, because of the odour. The chanter of the boudègue is called "graïle" and is equipped with a double reed, entirely cut from the body of the cane, resulting in a rather unique technique in this kind of reed-making.
