A redhead fairy, just out of a Broceliande tale, (…) eternal vibrations, powerful culture, charismatic personnality” La terrasse Octobre 2006
Cécile was born in Brittany, the Celtic region in the north-west of France where she studied harp.
Her unique harp technique and her appealing young voice reveal a world encompassing ancient poems, original compositions, Celtic tunes and Mediterranean melodies.
She takes you for a trip out of a time.
The young Breton composer and singer now performs her celtic and world music in France and all over the world.
« Cécile draws her inspiration from traditionnal melodies she renews with hints of « pop » and folk music (...) She sings with an exquisite grace »
“Cécile Corbel sings like a nightingale”

Cecile is a citizen of the world, and her voice flows as she tells about exile, rough seas, lovers parted by life, migrations.....
A wide-reaching and soothing energy
..An irresistible voice....
"She makes you think about Vanessa Paradis, with lower intensities though, and a hint of Sinnead O'Connor... it's love at first sight."
« You immediately think about Loreena McKENNITT
