Cecile Corbel – “L’orage” (The Storm).

Hey guys! 🙂

I am quite surprised that I haven’t shared any music from this artist so far, because I really like her and have been familiar with her music for many years now. Cecile Corbel is a Celtic harpist and singer from Finistere in Brittany. She first learned about Celtic harp during a concert of Greek harpist Elisa Vellia, who later became her teacher. Cecile sings in many languages, from English to French to Breton to Irish to Japanese. I guess what she’s particularly known for is composing the soundtrack to Arrietty the Borrower. I like her characteristic, a bit child-like-sounding voice. This song I want to share with you today comes from her latest album SongBook, Vol. 5 – Notes. As regular readers know, I have no idea about French, but Google Translate claims the title of this song translates to English as The Storm.
