In the spring of 98, the Bagad Men Ha Tan released their CD « Doue Lann » with the double-bassist Henri Texier. The music written by Pierrick Tanguy paid homage to the little Finistère port of Doëlan and its fishermen.

The music of « Doue Lann » was the framework for the encounter between the Bagad and the Senegalese percussionists of drum-master Doudou N’Diaye Rose. That show traveled throughout France in May and June 1998 and was an immense success. The encounter couldn’t stop there. Doudou N’Diaye Rose indeed wished to record this astonishing cross-cultural mix before the 2000 tour. And we accomplished this in Dakar last April. Doudou N’Diaye Rose - Senegalese percussionists

Composed of musicians who are also part of the best bagadou of Brittany (Locoal-Mendon, Quimper, Quimperlé, Saint-Nazaire), under the direction of Pierrick Tanguy, Men Ha Tan has taken up the vocation of disseminating original and lively music, of promoting encounters between different musical universes. This vocation corresponds to the current direction of Breton music in full evolution, which meanwhile holds fast to its roots.

Author of the national anthem of Senegal, and of most of the radio and television show theme music in his country, the Master Drummer of Dakar, Doudou N’Diaye Rose is a reference in African percussion. Living legend, solicited by the biggest musicians (Peter Gabriel, Dizzie Gillespie, Nina Hagen...), he is accompanied by a dozen drummers.

His compositions are played by many groups and bagadou.
