Eurovision 2022: France’s second rehearsal

Today is the final day of rehearsals in Turin, with the second rehearsals of the BIG 5 countries!

Next up on stage for their second rehearsal is France and Alvan & Ahez with the song “Fulenn”.

Who are Alvan & Ahez?

Alvan is a multi-instrumentalist electro artist from the French region of Brittany, the same place vocal group Ahez hail from. As an artist, Alvan loves to mix different genres within his own music, and despite his sound mostly being rooted in electronica, he also uses a lot of traditional chants and organic elements in his hybrid compositions.

Ahez (MarineSterenn and Stereen) are a traditional vocal group who aim to showcase their regional heritage through music, by writing and singing in their native language, Breton. In their songs, they tell contemporary stories that reference the ancient myths of Brittany.

Alvan & Ahez have made it known they want to show that tradition is not something stuck in the past, but rather, it is constantly evolving.

The Rehearsal

A similar staging to the national final’s one. Green lighting, fire and misty effects. The group is dressed in black and gold and they deliver a satisfactory vocal performance. There are quick shots and close-ups to the band members.

Alvan plays different musical instruments and the girls move around. There is also the same dancer as in the national final.

It seems they have improved a lot compared to their appearances to the pre-parties.

The streaming of the first run was cut before the run had finished. The second run was better. The third run was even better both vocally and visually, with some braziers added. The band themselves seems satisfied.

The Rehearsal

France keeps up with the green arena theme by having a podium with some greenery on it. The mix of dance and folk and traditional instruments in this song works quite nicely, and there is cohesion between the matching black and gold costumes and the vocal harmonies and looks like Alvan and Ahez have always been a group of four.

It’s also the most bass we’ve had on any track this year, and it’s pulsing through the arena in Turin, everyone will this song through the floor and this will also be conveyed to the TV audience.

In the second run-through, Alvan finished the song with a wink to the camera. Regarding pyro works on stage, France has two fire pits on each side of the stage and flame jets that shoot up whenever the bass drops and combined to the flashing lighting and the floor graphics, it creates a visually intense spectacle.
