Please note that this event has been cancelled.With an official WOMEX17 selection and 16 top Canadian award nominations, MAZ’s music has proven its category-defying appeal. With their third album ID, they celebrate Quebec’s traditional music while embracing modern streams in a flow of folk, jazz and electro.
Carrying their own fiery fiddling, thundering foot percussion and rousing reels, MAZ connect their roots to jazz wizardry and global dance grooves. Riding the line between accessible and ambitious, MAZ invites you on a wild ride that has been praised by audiences and critics alike, owing to its vibrant stage energy.
Join leader Marc Maziade (electric guitar, banjo, vocals) and his crew Rémi Pagé (violin, foot percussion), Roxane Beaulieu (keyboards, vocals) and Hugo Blouin (double bass) for a moment of complicity and intensity. A show of heart-warming music, brain-warming songs, jaw-dropping solos, trance inducing grooves, engaging soundscapes and frenzied foot stomps.
‘Through trad, jazz and electro, this Montreal band will get you dancing and thinking at the same time. They reinvent a way to consider identity.’
