montreal jazzfest lineup is out


Recommended Posts

lots of good stuff!


i'm especially psyched for opening night :)



Mali takes centre stage with two of its major artists: Salif Keita, global star of African music, intense political activist, friend of the Festival, recipient of the Carlos Jobim Award in 2006, creator of the brilliant M'Bemba; followed by Vieux Farka Touré, son of the legendary Ali Farka Touré, a singerguitarist inspired by the talent and charisma of his father who knows how to move us with his elegant Saharan blues. Bamako meets Montreal!

Just booked our fest...

De La Soul - Ghislain Poirer Double bill, Mistuer Valaire on saturday, Ayo on sunday (and maybe a late show?), and PUBLIC ENEMY on moday followed by Love Trio w/ U-Roy... too bad we have to leave at the beginning of the week. Probably catch some of the free stuff too, we'll see. Any body going to be around there then?
