Making the songs and music of peoples from past to present ring out, by reconnecting and uniting their breathing, their voices… Musically revisiting our relationship to the universe…

In a circular formation, Mi’kmaq songs and prayers will mingle with Tuvan overtone-singing and Inuit throat-singing. Joining their dialogue will be the ney (end-blown flute), the most ancient and emblematic instrument in both Sufi culture and Persian song, along with frame drums, an impassioned setar, and a prepared viola da gamba, that together will create a sonic environment where both the beauty and the complexity of our world burst forth.

Breathings, a musical experience to remind us of our fragile relationship to the universe and to the fundamental elements of life.

Faire résonner les chants et musiques des peuples d’hier à aujourd’hui, en reconnectant et en unissant leurs souffles et leurs voix… Revisiter en musique notre rapport à l’univers…

Dans une formation en cercle, les chants et prières mi’gmaq se mêleront aux chants diphoniques de Touva et aux chants de gorge des Innus. À leur dialogue se joindra le ney (flûte en roseau), l’instrument le plus ancien et emblématique des Soufis et des chants persans, mais aussi des tambours sur cadre, un sétar fougueux et une viole de gambe préparée, pour créer ensemble un univers sonore d’où jaillira à la fois la beauté et la complexité de notre monde.

Souffles, une expérience musicale pour nous rappeler notre rapport fragile à l’univers et aux éléments fondamentaux de la vie.
