Gigue Music, the meaning behind the name:
According to the Brittannica, Gigue, pronounced as “jig,” is a Baroque dance that came from the British Isles. While true jig is performed as a quick solo dance without form, gigue is performed by couples in formal ballet style. Gigue Music is inspired by these facts, since we perform a lot for weddings where couples begin their new lives together.
On the other hand, back in the Baroque period, there were two major kinds of music: sacred and secular. The sacred music was church music, and people played secular music such as dances outside the church. The gigues were part of the secular dance suites and were part of the pop culture. At Gigue Music, we perform classical music and also popular songs for our audiences. Gigue is the best representation of us.
