Rêveur-éveillé de bourdons circul’airs
Bruit-colleur de samplers
A présent, sa voix qui s’en mêle, flûte !
… émotions.
Et ce buis qui gémit sous le cuir qui se tend
      Et ses doigts entrouverts sur des abîmes de rondeaux bondissants
           Et les siamois qui ondulent en harmonie,
                appuyés contre leur jeune frère qui ronronne… grave.
                          Tempêtes bourdonnantes sur le Golfe de Gascogne !

Gascon scottish played with a  boha with bag drones and samplers.

Song in occitan langage :

"Viene lo temps"

The pedagogue - the passer

He worked for about fifteen years at the Conservatoire des Landes, where he created the department of traditional music and dance.

He regularly leads instrument workshops.

The passer

And of course the instrument manufacturer

Since 1976, Yan Cozian has been developing the technique of making single reeds. The reeds are the heart of the instrument, they bring accuracy and colour to the instrument. This is the most technical area of the boha - the Landaise bagpipe - making.

In the 90's, in order to promote his instrument classes, he developed a study boha model inspired by Alain Cadeillan's creations. Many amateurs and occasional makers benefited from his plans and advice.

 

At the same time, he created and developed a new model of caremèras and invented a musetta for an easier learning of the bagpipe. He developed many innovations on the boha such as the dill and the pocket bumblebee in C and D.
