Occitan singing courses

The Limousin I.E.O. has been organizing one to two singing courses every year since 2006.

From 2006 to 2011, we’ve been organizing « Chantar e dançar lemosin », the Limousin week, in partnership with the Traditional Music Section of the Limoges Conservatoire and the Trad’bande.
This January theme week included an Occitan singing session with Jan dau Melhau, a Limousin dancing session with Françoise Étay and a lecture.
Since 2012, the formula does not exist any more but the Occitan singing session is continuing with a different course leader each year.
