SOKALO REMIX

Credit: Vitor MunhozThe Sokalo Remix Project is a transatlantic artistic collaboration between [ZØGMA] and four professional artists from the Irish traditional performing arts.

Each time they meet, the artists have only a few days ahead to set nearly eighty minutes of material.

Each time, the resulting production highlights the proximity of Irish and Quebecois traditional cultures, while proposing a new aesthetics and a new vision of folklore merging both tradition and contemporary life.

From this collaboration emerges an enthralling, highly energetic production, at the crossroad of modernity and tradition, already presented in Ireland, Quebec and now, Atlantic Canada.

Hearing the music of  both cultures was like listening to two dialects of the same language, each possessing  its own unmistakable draw and nuances, and both blending harmoniously together. The dance collaboration introduced me to an entirely new approach to folk dance, with one foot tapping in the past and the other foot  stepping into  the future, it was a fascinating dance dialogue which enriched my understanding of both traditions. - Tristan Rosenstock, Presenter @Imeall, TG4

TROY MACGILLIVRAY

 You could say it’s in his DNA.

Troy MacGillivray of Lanark, Nova Scotia, came into this world with a birthright. Heir to the centuries-old music his Scottish ancestors brought to Canada over 200 years ago, he has become a master of the fiddle and piano traditions that have been passed down through the generations. Audiences around the world have been captivated by the flying fingers and energetic pace of this multiple award winner...and if you’re lucky, you just might get a little step or two out of him!

Troy’s roots-centered approach to playing has the power to inspire any audience. This is repeatedly proven in his performances in Canada (including Nunavut), the US and UK, the Netherlands, Germany, Japan and Australia.
 

Troy will be joined by his sister Sabra MacGillivray, percussionist and champion dancer, and accompanist Wendy MacIsaac.


Ronald Bourgeois is considered one of the key influential French speaking singer/songwriters in Atlantic Canada’s Acadie. Originally from Chéticamp, Ronald has inherited the rich musical tradition deeply rooted in the history and culture of Cape-Breton.

With simple lyrics and catchy melodies the artist weaves his creative work carefully interlacing imagery and music into engaging musical stories that crossover age and musical genres. It is not surprising that artists from Acadie, Québec, Louisiana as well as France have recorded his songs.
