Paul has undertaken to bridge the divide between the Two Solitudes,
one album at a time. Brûler Le Jour is his first collection of
songs almost exclusively in French, with just one title in his mother
tongue. This year, Espace Musique/Radio-Canada conferred upon Paul the
title of Sacré talent! (a wonderful talent), a distinction given
to the most promising musical talent among the best the francophone
scene has to offer.

More wonderful talent! Knitting, mittens, hareskin, winter and red cheeks:
Welcome to the universe of Tricot Machine, a duo comprised of Catherine
Leduc and Matthieu Beaumont. The pair hail from Trois-Rivières,
contrary to what they lead us to believe with their song Super ordinaire;
it’s simply that “Béloeil” happens to rhyme
with écureuil. They are the recipients of the Prix Miroir at
the Festival d’été de Québec and have also
received 4 nominations apiece from the GAMIQ and the ADISQ.

Joël and his friends, all gathered in his room... Joël Chevalier,
then aged 12, was goofing around with his neighbours, improvising songs
based around music sampled from old 45s. Their pseudo-albums were titled
Les Amis au Yémen, Les Amis en Iran, and, of
course, Les Amis au Pakistan, which was the most sophisticated
and beloved of those cassette tapes.

“Baroque ‘n’ roll” that defies classification:
that pretty much sums up the repertoire of Les Voix Ferrées.
Truly a musical melting pot, the vocal ensemble thumbs its nose at purist
considerations of geography and chronology, sciences much too clinical
for this band of jolly souls.

Our favourite fanfare! Fifteen État d’Urgence artists performing
original music that is sometimes sad, at other times uplifting. An inspired
blend of joy, chaos and poetry!

They are not homeless, they are nomadic.
With our office parties and family get-togethers just around the corner,
they wonder just what is so “merry” about Christmas, aside
from being able to sleep till noon in the subway stations. Through their
eyes, their memories and their way of experiencing the Holidays—or
simply the reality of a Quebec winter out on the streets—Mise
au jeu invites you to revisit the classics of Christmas, all
reworked in its own inimitable fashion, without censorship and with
an occasional sprinkle of sarcasm. A colourful, authentic choir will
reach out to you, daring to sing what others, perhaps you too, feel
Come pick up your new songbooks and sing with us under the big top this
November 25th! Noël à grelotter is a collaboration
between Mise au jeu, Sac à dos and Projets autochtones du Québec.
It is also the fruit of ten discussion and writing workshops with street
people who graciously and generously shared with us the ups and downs
of Christmas their way!
Mise au jeu is a theatrical intervention troupe comprised of versatile
creators hailing from across Quebec and the world. It supports adults
and young people who wish to act for change in their community. For
16 years now, Mise au jeu has used theatre as a tool for communication,
education and dialogue, throughout Quebec and, occasionally, abroad.

Tout nu je suis presque is the
title of this collection of songs with a definite 70s feel: a blend
of disco, folk, classic rock, reggae, dub, bossa nova, French song,
and the list goes on...
