With no less than 13 nominations for Chasse-Galerie and Télescope, MAZ launched a third album in 2017, entitled ID. In a ﬂow of trad, jazz and electro, the Montreal based group juggles with musical creation and tradition. They speak to the heart, body and soul – without losing the mind!
On stage, MAZ takes you on a musical journey that renews with Québec’s heritage, where songs and instrumentals open up to new groovy perspectives. Keyboards, electric guitar and electro beats meet up with ﬁddle, banjo, double bass and voices over blazing Quebecois foot tapping. This wild ride has been praised by audiences and critics alike, both at home and abroad, owing to MAZ’s vibrant stage energy.
Les Poules à Colin are a dynamic and creative group that turn heads wherever they go. Exposed to Québécois and other folk music from the moment they were hatched, these offspring of trad musicians were immersed in music, they have grown up with and learned their craft firsthand from some of Québec’s finest, whether backstage at international festivals or at lively kitchen jams in Lanaudière, arguably Québec’s most musical region. The five members of « the latest and youngest band out of the hot Québécois traditional music scene » (fRoots) are entrancing and sparkle with unpretentious, natural talent and respect for their repertoire – including beautifully arranged original and folk-trad songs and tunes. Nominated at ADISQ 2015 in the category Album of the Year – Traditional, Les Poules à Colin is inspired by the roots of traditional music while incorporating elements from various contemporary influences. The group Les Poules à Colin shows you a new facet of Quebec folk.
Join us for MAZ + Les Poules à Colin as they come together to make you travel in their musical universe full of modernity and tradition.
