A beautiful An Dro written by Patrig Ar Balc’h, bombarde player with the Breton band Strobinell. They recorded the tune on their second release, Breizh Hud.

On the recording, the piece is in g-minor, but I transposed it to the more common e-minor before I submitted it to the tunebook.

Here is the tune in the original key of g-minor:

Just in case someone wants to know:

Maïwenn is a female name from Brittany. I combines the names Mari (Mary) and Gwenn (meaning ‘the white one’) in a new word.

That was that.
