Now that’s multicultural for you. An interview in a national minority language (Breton) about a traditional music event with a couple of black musicians wiping the floor with the competition in the background. 
Not the kind of thing you’d find on the websites of the various antifascist yet state-nationalist organisations that seem to be two-a-penny in the UK, France, Spain etc. 
In their defence of the old imperialist states – institutionally intolerant of their original national minorities as well as any other minority group that menaces the establishments hold on power – these anti-racist organisations seem at times more part of the problem than any kind of solution.

Oh go on! It’s not my musical cup-of-tea but I’ll include it here as the album is a huge success and uses the Breton language.

But give me some punk anyday!
