Nolwenn Leroy: Sixième Continent

A new video by Breton chanteuse Nolwenn Leroy for the song Sixième Continent.

The song comes from her album Ô Filles de l'Eau which was released in November last year and continues her mission to make Celtic music with a commercial modern sound.

The album is her fifth, and it followed the Bretonne album from 2010, a number one album in France for over seven weeks that featured her versions of modern and traditional celtic songs.

Her latest collection keeps the celtic style, but with the songs more focussed on sea-related themes.

Nolwenn initially won the second series of the TV show Star Academy in 2002 and had her first number one single the following year.

While her previous single from Ô Filles de l'Eau, Juste pour me souvenir, didn't make quite such a big splash, her new clip and her extensive tour dates from this month through the rest of the year show that Nolwenn remains a big fish in the French music sea.
