YAO

Kintsugi – la beauté dans le chaos…

Between slam, soul, funk and afro sounds, YAO explores the themes of pain, resilience and hope in this personal and therapeutic show. Inspired by his new album of the same name (Kintsugi), he uses his talents as a lyricist and performer to transform his life wounds into a sensory, poetic and musical immersion.

Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold – transforming the cracks, and the object itself, into a stronger and more beautiful work of art.

From the idea of making a “kintsugi of man”, this show will take you through intimate moments of fragility, vulnerability and introspection; sometimes raw, sometimes abrupt, but always true and authentic.

After his last show NOMADE (from the album LAPSUS), presented more than 150 times in 7 different countries, and awarded “Show of the Year” at the Gala Trille Or 2019, YAO offers you a little beauty in the chaos with KINTSUGI.

ANDRINA TURENNE

Andrina Turenne is a Franco-Manitoban Métis artist from Saint-Boniface. Her love of music dates back to her childhood when she learned to sing around the campfire with family and friends. A singer, songwriter and musician, she has been in the music business for over 20 years. She has appeared on nearly 50 albums, toured five continents and has been featured on TV and radio in Canada and internationally. Formerly of the group Chic Gamine, Andrina Turenne has been thriving as a solo artist since 2016. Her music has also found an important place in the world of theater: She has performed several of her compositions in Gabriel Dumont’s flamboyant epic Le Wild West Show in 2017-18, as well as in the musical cabaret L’article 23 and its sequel in 2021. The singer was also invited to participate in the swearing-in of the Governor General in July 2021, in Ottawa, where she delivered a performance that crossed the country’s screens. In the winter of 2022, thanks to a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts, she completed a 4-month creative residency in Louisiana to compose new works while collaborating with local artists. In the fall of 2022, she will release her first bilingual album of original compositions, in addition to a French EP.

Jocelyne Baribeau

With her touching and pure voice, Jocelyne invites us to be carried away by her sparkling tunes and tender ballads. In a style with shades of contemporary folk and a touch of pop-country, her dynamic and animated presence is also tinged with intimacy and emotion. Jocelyne Baribeau’s songs are thoughtful and honest. They reflect the core of her being, a perfect blend of sweet and sour.

Originally from Manitoba, Jocelyne grew up surrounded by music. A collaborator and entrepreneur by nature, Jocelyne has developed, over the years, a series of musical projects that have contributed to her evolution as an artist. She first worked in the world of opera and classical music, then launched her solo adventure with a project for children under the pseudonym Madame Diva, which was a resounding success.

A woman of varied experiences, Jocelyne has come a long way since her debut.  Her first solo maxi-disc Entre toi et moi won the Francophone Artist of the Year award at the 2016 Western Canadian Music Awards. Since then, recognition from her peers has been confirmed with nominations at the Canadian Folk Music Awards, Gala Country, ROSEQ awards, Contact West, Folkfest and Manitoba Discoveries.

She has opened for Alexandre Désilets and the Sœurs Boulay. Many of the songs in her repertoire have been covered and adapted by choirs and symphony orchestras. An active member of the musical community outside of Quebec, Jocelyne regularly shares the stage with other artists in double bill and in creation such as Stef Paquette, Anique Granger, Ariane Mahryke Lemire and Alexis Normand. She was Patrick Norman’s guest on the national TV show Pour l’amour du country.

Viencent Vallières

Toute beauté n’est pas perdue

Vincent Vallières solo! Let yourself be carried away by Vincent Vallières who will be alone on stage, close by, in your ear, with the songs that are part of your story. The concert will leave room for discussion and exchange.

A show in the image of this essential Quebec singer: unifying, lively and authentic.

With a twenty-year career, seven outstanding albums and three Félix awards-including Performer of the Year-Vincent Vallières draws on his impressive repertoire to take you on a journey. And he doesn’t hesitate to let you discover new songs from his album, to be released in February 2021.

toulouz

Dana Waldie’s youth was rich in music and culture. By the age of 16, the Franco-Manitoban artist was working on her musical identity, inspired by the soundscapes of her father’s folk vinyl. Dana Waldie’s sound has transformed – performing under the name “toulouz”, she now explores a musical genre that falls somewhere between Pop, R&B, and her mother’s beloved yéyé. She draws her inspiration from the majestically strange music of artist Nao and the pop touches of bilingual singer Charlotte Cardin, giving her a synthetic yet warm sound with a touch of soul. Toulouz’ music defies convention and escapes categorization by transforming familiar musical genres into something new and sparkling.
