Hailing from Correze in south-western France, San Salvador is a six-voice and percussion collective that combines Occitan poetry with hypnotic vocal harmonies propelled by surging percussion. Their compositions use the Occitan language—a Romance language spoken in southern France, Italy’s Occitan Valleys, and in parts of Spain and Monaco—as a rhythmic instrument, combining poetry with hypnotic vocal harmonies cascading over shifting patterns of compelling percussion to create their own universe.

Rooted in the region’s deep a cappella folk traditions, these progressive troubadours turn language and vocals into rhythmic instruments with the power of (tribal) trance and techno, and even “math rock” and punk. The result is one big cluster of joyful energy that’ll make the whole room jump and swing.
