Esprit de Frontiera
The second CD ESPRIT DE FRONTIERA was finished in 1999 (with the participation of Ares Tavolazzi, Elio Rivagli and Vincenzo Zitello), in this work it is clear that Gai Saber considers the tradition as a moving reality that is not only fed by the past ("an in-depth exercise to recover the minority culture of the Occitan valleys, avoiding the fetters of the tired traditionalism""- Mucchio Selvaggio n. 359 July 1999) (even hip-hop stressing at the entry of Oubriè d’Ousitanio and In Foe Zmouorth and an often jazzed bass – "Eddy Cilia – Blow Up n. 16 September 1999) (The frontier spirit is brougth to life by the new record of Gai Saber with actual and even modern tones – John Vignola – Rockerilla n. 229 September 1999) (the perfect joint of acustic, electrical and electronic sonorities shows up at first, then the incisiveness of the arrangments and the beautiful variety of the singing voices, that is another distinguishing mark of the group…. Elio Bussolino – La Repubblica – Thursday 19th August 1999), (Esprit de Frontiera rocks hard, and the Troubadour songs meet inventive dance beats that combine traditional percussion (bodhrans, galoubet, tambourin) with electronic samples.
The aim here is to ensure the popularity of Occitanic, and Gai Saber want you to move your ass…Chiara Bosonetto's voice is a wonder….Lee Blackstone – Rootsworld, updated June 6, 2000) ("Esprit de frontiera" sees Gai Saber having found their style, and presenting a coherent album of modern Occitan music – Michael Moll – Folkworld, 06-11-99)
