7.45pm - Mélisande



Drawing from a rich heritage of traditional francophone songs, Mélisande unearths rare treasures that she adapts and presents with a feminist perspective and the distinctly modern sound of the band. The Québécois quartet plays an energetic blend of traditional music, rock and electro with a mix of acoustic and electric instruments, vocal harmonies and programming. Led by Mélisande and her husband Alexandre de Grosbois-Garand, the group offers a fresh artistic proposal to the folk-world-trad music scene. Its first album Les métamorphoses, greatly acknowledged by the critics here and abroad, was released in May 2014 on La Prûche Libre, an independent label co-owned by one of Québec’s folk music legends Yves Lambert.

10pm - Eljuri



Eljuri creates a sonic reflecting pool. This energizing musician and performer absorbs drops of influence from all over the world, from cultures that she calls her own and others into which she dives to discover their treasures. Her music is sometimes a mirror lake reflecting this generation’s global fusion and sometimes a turbulent sea churning with cultural clashes.



10.45pm - Doctor Nativo



Doctor Nativo is one of Central America’s most exciting new talents. His music explores themes of Mayan spirituality, social justice and folk wisdom, punctuated by an explosive sound combining reggae, cumbia, hip hop, and Mayan traditional music. His live show is a powerful experience that has captivated audiences all throughout the Americas and Europe.



11.30pm - Wesli



Wesli (Wesley Louissaint), multi instrumentalist, singer & producer is “the strongest world creature Montréal presently has to offer internationally”.
Born and raised in Haiti, world music artist Wesli comes up as a strong player in this new generation of artists. Multi talented singer, guitar player, percussionist, producer and arranger, he is described as Montreal’s revelation. Founding hope through his devotion to music, having grown up in a poor and violent ghetto of Haiti, he is inspiring a better future for younger generations.



12.15pm - Karikatura



Karikatura makes life-affirming, body-shaking music that moves people around the world. While the band has toured everywhere from Japan to Brazil, New York City is home. With bright horns, socially conscious lyrics and booty-bouncing beats, Karikatura delivers real songs that transcend style and genre. An organic synthesis of all the music heard blasting out of car windows and shops onto the streets of NYC, Karikatura lives where cumbia meets hip-hop, reggae meets klezmer and indie-rock meets afrobeat. Neither purist nor revivalist, this is music of the present, for the future.The band just released its debut full-length album, Eyes Wide, on Ropeadope Records, following up two EPs and DIY tours of Europe, Asia and South America.
