L'inscription territoriale de la musique traditionnelle en Bretagne

Abstract : Among the various forms of territoriality stemming from the confrontation of mobility with sedentarity, regional territoriality is one of the most complex. As a major vehicle for the breton territoriality, the current practice of traditional music does not only act on the symbolic construction of Brittany. Vocal and instrumental practices more and less marked with tradition lie indeed in the everyday life of social relationships. Noticeable at a local scale, this socio-spatial influence of traditional music also occurs at the regional scale. This geographical approach of the breton music specificies the spatial dimension on several scale of various forms of musical expression who claim more and less for a breton nature. Basically, it highlights the interactions between culture and territory and underlines the double identitary and patrimonial function of the concept of culture. This spatial dimension is analysed trough the dispatching of the main places of music diffusion – fest-noz, music competition, art and popular tradition celebrations and festivals – but also through the actor's practices and representations of the traditional musical system – musicians, audience, organisation committees. All these elements provide the territorial processus of traditional music in Brittany.
