AllMusic Review by

Released in the year they celebrated their 60th anniversary, Degemer Mat, Bienvenue is the 2012 album from Bagad de Lann-Bihoué, the only professional group of musicians to represent both the French Navy and Breton heritage. Produced by Xurxo Nunez, its 12 tracks combine the contemporary (an instrumental version of Coldplay's "Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall," a first recording with Alain Souchon on his 1979 tribute to the military band) and the historical ("Kentizh Man Splann Ar Goulou," "Dans Tro Fest"), including collaborations with Laurent Voulzy ("Belle-Île-en-Mer"), Celtic Woman ("The Water Is Wide"), and Gwendal Le Ruyet ("Le Groove de l'Oust").
