"Tri Martolod", meaning "The Three Sailors", is one of the most well-known folk songs of Brittany, France. This version is completely resequenced and sung by yours truly.

Singers Alan Stivell and Nolwenn Leroy have made this song popular, but I didn't know about Tri Martolod until a friend from Brittany told me about it. I was learning Breton at the time, albeit in bits and pieces, but I wanted to give this song a shot. The first time I remade it, it was piano and..... blur voices? This is effectively my second remake of Tri Martolod, a public domain song, and the only one which shall enter Newgrounds.

Thanks!

Well, if you'd like, PM me and I'll pass you the lyrics and a translation. It's essentially a folk song about three sailors who stop at the city regions of Brittany, precisely, at a restaurant below a windmill. One of them meets a waitress, and the two go to Nantes to have rings cut out for them -- they would be married soon after.

Great song. Well played. Mixing is just alright but still thoroughly enjoyable.

Keep it up!

Really nice

I don't quite know how to explain the feeling.
It just sounds good, even though I don't understand anything sung (xD) it just is... makes a certain... carefree feeling, I dunno. It has a very nice tune, and I just love the folksong thing, this song totally sparked an interest. Your voice is wonderful and blends really well with the instruments.

Now I need to know what the song is about
*downloads and looks up the lyrics*

I've sent you the translation - hope it's okay. I think I might've committed an error or two.

And thanks so much for the feedback! ^_^
