A bilingual show with verve and wit for a city whose head spins with language. Vive la difference! In English, French and Innu.
Recorded by CBC Radio One.
Cabaret hosted by actors Danette Mackay and Harry Standjofski, who can play with words in French as well as in English!
A get-together for singers and an anarchist performer who grew up or work in more than one language. A typically Montreal duality, n’est pas?
Susie Arioli, with a wonderfully unique voice, and Jordan Officer, guitarist and talented arranger, explore jazz from the 30s, 40s and 50s with elan and audacity, switching back and forth from French to English. A Texan on his father’s side and French on his mother’s side, Quebec-born Thomas Hellman is one of the top young singer-songwriters, whose first album Stories from Oscar’s Old Café has been called a major musical discovery by both French and English critics. He will be accompanied by pianist Olaf Gundel. The Innu singer Claude McKenzie met with great success as part of the duo Kashtin and he is finally back on the scene after a seven-year absence. Performer and anarchist violinist Norman Nawrocki is one of the pillars of the underground scene, an activist who has founded numerous bands and made many albums featuring his wild political and anti-sexist music.
