GLΔZ Music : what is at stake ?

Glaz is the Breton word that describes the indefinable color of the sea in Brittany; a blend between blue, green and grey. 

Glaz also defines what we call the Armor and the Argoat : the sea and the land. The core of Brittany. 

Glaz Music gathers 25 professional music companies based in Brittany. They all represent different artistic colors and engage collectively in the development of local artists and music bands. Promoters, managers, music halls, festivals, editors… Glaz Music represents the diversity of musical aesthetics which coexist in Brittany and the diversity of “making”.
