Burnside Album Details
Genticorum, La Bibournoise
“Genticorum makes a very full and glorious noise, both instrumentally and vocally…a band that's going to go places.” SING OUT! Genticorum has become one of the most sought after proponents of Québécois music, having performed and toured in over 15 countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. Firmly rooted in the soil of their native land, the energetic and original traditional 'power trio' also incorporates the dynamism of today's North American and European folk cultures in their music. They weave precise and intricate fiddle and flute work, gorgeous vocal harmonies, energetic foot percussion and guitar and bass accompaniment into a big and jubilant musical feast. Their distinctive sound, sense of humor and stage presence make them a supreme crowd pleaser. Their brand new album, builds on Genticorum's trademark sound, combining rollicking interpretations of traditional Quebecois folk songs with a collection of original instrumentals written in the traditional style. Energetic and folky at the same time, excellent in harmonized song as in the most frenzied rhythms; sometimes it's hard to believe there are just three band-members! Yann Falquet : guitar, jew's harp, vocals Alexandre de Grosbois-Garand : wooden flute, electric bass, fiddle, vocalsPascal Gemme : fiddle, feet, vocals.
