This week World Vibes has another special musical theme on offer ! Part 2 of our interviews with artists from Europe, Africa and North America who performed at this year’s 29th Edition of the Francofolies de Montréal International Music Festival ! Click on ‘World Vibes above for more details. A show not to be missed .
Our first hour starts with our first of Part 2’s interviews at the Francofolies de Montréal’s 29 edition this year with new Montreal based Rock band with a surprisingly political incorrect name, La Conversion des Sauvages (yes The Conversion of Savages). Four guys from Montreal, Toronto and elsewhere, we talk of their inspirations, musical creations and plans. Then we talk to ‘Mali’, aka Christophe Petit, one of four members of the Paris based band Tryo (France). From Reggae to socially aware fusions, we talk of their various interests, ecology, answering terrorism, and more. Fascinating creative juices explained and displayed, enjoy !
Our second hour continues our interviews with artists from this year’s Francofolies de Montréal, with our next interview with incredibly talented new Acadian singer-songwriter Caroline Savoie (New Brunswick). We talk of her young beginnings, composing songs since her teens, winning awards since then too, her debut first album just out, and plans for the future. Then we talk to tremendously inspiring Laetitia Zanzombe (Central African Republic-Canada), just after one of her concerts. We talk of her atypical career path, 8 years in Montreal, her new album to be released in autumn, and especially her ‘patchwork’ Sanza music. Creativity and inspirations for all, enjoy !
