Codicille 2013 (Marc Malempré & Rémi Decker)

In 1872, the Society for Literature in Wallonie established a competition for the most complete collection of «Cramignons de Liège» - a type of folk dance unique to this region. The first price was a gold medal and 150 Francs. The winner of the contest was Leonard TERRY and Leopold CHAUMONT obtained the Certificate of merit.
From this, we can see that there was already an awareness that the folk culture was dying out.
This collection of «Cramignons», combined with personal collections of transcribed oral memory in the Ardennes and papers by other researchers, provide our sources. This CD is inspired by the traditional songs of village singers in Wallonie and we hope we have captured the popular spirit that drove them.
The Sunday dances, songs and melodies played in the countryside of South Belgium represent the music of modest people. They are presented to you with or without additional harmony and they try to reconcile today’s and yesterday’s styles.
