Constructed like an invented tarot deck, De Mòrt Viva explores the idea of a contemporary paganism in ten jubilant, humorous and spiritual odes.

The Auvergne Occitan imposes itself at the spittoon, deploying its metaphorical and polysemic network, with the particular candor of a newly acquired language.
The melody is born from the word, the poem gives birth to the song, in a form that could recall from afar and without erudition, the trobar, the art of the troubadours.

In this game-album each piece describes a possible situation, with its typical emotions and stakes, its often reversible systems of forces whose meaning escapes Manichean thinking.
Drawing from the ageless figures of the Carnival, these ten arcane songs will perhaps bring to our consciences what to think differently about contemporary concerns.
Always hybrid and exploratory, Sourdure's music reveals itself here under a new face. Exoskeleton or chemical revelator, the electronics are camouflaged in the roughness of the song as if to disturb its contours. Carried away by an armada of percussions and wind instruments, the voice naturally takes its strong place, whispering, savoring the langue d'oc like a macerated wine.

- Laurent Boithias on the hurdy-gurdy.
- Eloïse Decazes (Arlt) on vocals and concertina.
- Josiane Guillot in the voice.
- Wassim Hallal at the daf.
- Maud Herrera (Cocanha) on vocals.
- Elisa Trébouville (Bourrasque, Sourdurent) on banjo and vocals.
- Amélie Pialoux (Ensemble Nulla Dies Sine Musica), book cornet, trumpets
- Jacques Puech (La Nòvia, Sourdurent) at the cabrette

Taken from this new tarot, here is the card of the rupture:

The hot season has passed, the last fruits have fallen, the table is shaved and apocalyptic particles are diffused in the air.

The outside closes in on the inner depths.

The necessary recession smoulders a promise of flowering in more favourable times.

Then the song puts on its prayer costume, dresses in incantatory finery to call the season and embrace its change of course.
