Calgary-Montréal is a collective of four musicians from Montréal and four from Calgary. Coming from different horizons, these artists find a common interest in traditional musics and improvisation. Their original show presents their conversations in music; conversations between two cities often pictured as wildly different, conversations between different musical traditions.
From Calgary we have Aya Mhana (HYMN), Jeremy Gignoux (l’Ensemble acoustique), Jiajia Li (Ginger Beef), and Robin Tufts (Velocity Trio). Visiting from Montreal are Aurélien Tomasi (Gypsy Kumbia Orchestra, Sesquialtera), Hugues-Olivier (MAZ), Mathieu Langlois (Kutsi Merki), and Sébastien Leblanc (Shnock et Shanti).
Calgary-Montréal will be presented at Theatre 1308 on January 14 and 15 and at Maison de la Culture Mercier in Montreal on January 29.
