Contra music of Quebec! Although grounded in traditional Quebec rhythms and melodies, this music is innovative and refreshing. Tidal Wave, or Raz-de-Marée, with its cross-border personnel, proves that music not only transcends national boundaries, but brings people together. Prepare to be swept up in this glorious, perfect musical storm. And the liner notes are completely bilingual, French and English!
Richard Forest and Domino
Quebecois dance music is driving,
fast and tons of fun. It's fun to
dance to, but it's equally as much fun to listen to. You can't keep
your feet from tapping and you definitely won't be gloomy when you listen to it. This is a fiddle based tradition and Richard Forest is a great fiddler. If you also love the accordion , you are in for a big treat as Sabin Jacques plays fabulous diatonic accordion. On this recording Domino plays fifteen original compositions for Quebecois dance and American contra dances. Highly recommended!
