Ahez is a French vocal group from Carhaix, Brittany, consisting of Marine Lavigne, Sterenn Diridollou and Sterenn Le Guillou.[1] The trio represented France in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 together with Alvan with the song "Fulenn".[2]


Diridollou, Lavigne and Le Guillou met during their studies at Diwan secondary school in Carhaix, Brittany, where they practised the traditional singing style kan ha diskan.[1][3] The name "Ahez" comes from Ker Ahez, a popular etymology for the Breton name of Carhaix (Karaez), and Ahes, a Breton mythological figure.[4] The group started performing at fest-noz festivals in 2018, and took part in the 2018 edition of the Inter-Celtic Festival of Lorient with the band Eben.[5]

In the summer of 2021, they met singer and producer Alvan in a bar in Rennes.[1] Together, they participated in Eurovision France, c'est vous qui décidez ! 2022 ("Eurovision France, you decide ! 2022"), the French national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest 2022, with the song "Fulenn".[5] They went on to win the competition, winning both the jury vote and televote.[2] "Fulenn" is set to be the first Eurovision entry to be sung in Breton since 1996.[6]
