Bouree Sans Souci

Not traditional and not Irish ( forgive me! ) and of course not a berndance, here is a self composed tune.

I don’t know, it coud be a Berne Dance… 😎

I know I risk being lynched, or at the least tar-and-feathered, but nice melody… 😉

Bouree?

To my feelings this does not sound really like a Bouree and it has some eastern/jewish touch. Maybe it should be renamed as "Leopold Blooms’ Frailich" or "The Klezmorim from Liguria" 😉

Nice melody anyway!

sisspipwer, you are right about the melody, actually it has an eastern/jewish touch, but the division ( the lenght of the notes in the measure ) is inpired by another bouree I know.

Alternate 4th measure of the B part

|de fg eAcd|

Araber Tantz ~ Bulgar ~ Freylakh ~ 😎

‘sispipwer’ ~ ? Yes, that is also what takes me and why I like it, but I have been able to dance a bouree to it and what’s wrong with a cross-over anyway? Don’t you thing that maybe going ‘freylakh’ with it would be a little too fast and steamy?

This title sound much more Irish and so this lovely tune can withstand the trad police much better, especially in its uilleann pipes version:

Thanks for posting the uilleann pipes version.

Re: Bouree Sans Souci

Lovely round sound!
Nice, understated harmony on a beautiful tune!
And yes, at that tempo it is more like a bourrée. But I reckon it would make a perfectly acceptable scottische/barndance if you upped the tempo and halved the beats/steps (i.e.; play it in 2/2)
Bravo!
PS; a well-known Irish song w a similar theme/title is "Cad é sin…"
