Melisande [electrotrad] (Canada)
Here is the recipe for Melisande [electrotrad]'s award-winning cocktail : pour equal parts of centuries-old traditional songs, state of the art electronic instruments and relentless drums, add an once of fiery fiddle, peaty flute and hypnotic jaw harp, a dash of tangy banjo and a hint of full-bodied bass. Shake vigorously, garnish with a sparkling singer and serve on stage!
Led by Melisande and partner Alexandre 'Moulin' de Grosbois-Garand (former member of Genticorum), the band offers a fresh proposal to the folk-world music scene since its debut in 2014. The success of the first two albums, hailed by critics from home and abroad, allowed the group to present over 150 performances in Canada, Australia, France and the United States. The sophomore album Les mill simes (Borealis Records, Feb 2017) features a collection of traditional francophone songs carefully selected during researches in various archive centres in Quebec and the United States. With its infectious energy and engaging stage presence, the band gets the crowd stomping, dancing and singing wherever it goes!
