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 (oud, voice)
Jeremy Gignoux (violin, viola)
Jiajia Li (flutes, dizi)
Robin Tufts (percussion, drums)
Visiting from Montreal are:
Aurélien Tomasi (clarinet, saxophones)
Hugues-Olivier (double bass)
Mathieu Langlois (guitar flamenca, saxophones)
Sébastien Leblanc (guitars, caval, tilinca)
Calgary-Montréal will be presented at Theatre 1308 on Nov 4 and 5 and at Maison de la Culture Mercier in Montreal on December 10.
