Usually I see people play this music on melodeon but I want to play it on CBA. I think some people call it "Aminor french tunes". Musette sound is forbidden forthis music I believe and it is usually played on wooden boxes. I'm sure you know what style I mean. Usually sounds kind of medieval isch. I want to increase my repertoir of these tunes :)
Does not necessarily need to be in minor. Could be a mixup or just major etc..

There are lots of French sites with A minor French tunes - they are often dance tunes so can be a bit repetitive (a bit like Morris music !).  They are usually played on diatonic. Definitely not musette and are usually written in a modern form of tablature for diatonic, but its just as easy to read for CBA or PA.  You can often listen to the tune and usually download the music free.

They are working musicians in Brittany but the music is more than that

Yes Dunlustin !!!  I have just done a diato course there and it was excellent - they are wonderful people.  They have devised a way of teaching diato and chroma and it is very successful.  People go there from all over Europe.  Their music is very original, aimed at playing 2, 3 or 4 parts, with some traditional Breton tunes.  Definitely no musette !
