Jean Abadie

Proud beret wearer Jean Abadie from Oloron Sainte Marie is a singer of traditional Béarnaise songs and the author of the book “Soùnque tau plasé de cantá", in the Béarnaise dialect (English: “To the Pleasure of Singing”).
It is a poetic and musical work, a collection of original songs from Béarn. The idea to write the book was born after a discussion with members of Biarn Toustem, an organisation that promotes Béarnaise culture and language.
