Born in 2006 at the Cléguérec Folk Festival (brittany – France), HIKS became an essential band on the “new breton folk scene”, mixing celtic & folk music with electro, dub, rock and pop sounds and energy.
HIKS the band imposes a new musical genre, a unique style and arrangements that sign a most original ID card.
Considering the music as a field of exploration, the dance is pulsed by an electro-rock sound and riffs in the unique Anglo-Saxon influences whose fusion gave birth to the ‘Drum’n Breizh’.
One thing all HIKS musicians have in common, is undoubtedly the need to perform, with traditional and folk music integrated in their own songs.
In other words, HIKS takes musical granite and turns it into glitter…!
