Established in Guérande (south Brittany), I have been making Bodhrans since 2005.

First experiments:

People soon acknowledged the quality of the sound and this encouraged me to continue ...

Since 2005 many bodhrans have made their way to different corners in France, Belgium, Switzerland, Scotland, USA and Ireland.

One even travelled to Nouméa in New Caledonia !

In 2016 La Philharmonie de Paris chose Olaika Bodhran for their student musicians to play in their fiddle-bodhran workshop.


You can try the bodhrans at the workshop (please contact me before) Or during the different Irish music festivals that take place in France : An Seisiùn in Mesquer (44) at the beginning of July, Brittany Winter School(BWS) in Arzon (56) at the end of February, Celticimes> in Albiez (73) in July.

During these festivals you can meet and exchange with other musicians :

Mr Kevin Crawford Mr Robbie Walsh Mr Junior Davey Mr Seamus O'Kane Mr John Joe Kelly
