Description
This 2008 CD celebrated the 400th anniversary of Quebec City, home to the largest Francophone group in the Americas and situated in the only province in Canada where French is the main language. With its mix of traditional Québecois folk music and Francophone pop, there's something for everyone. Les Cowboys Frigants' Marie-Annick Lépine performs a folkish "Au Chalet," TV competition star Annie Villeneuve sings "Un Homme" along with a theramin and bluesy dobro, Martin Léon does a reggae-flavored "Je m'demande," and Mathieu Mathieu sings a jaunty "Cette ville."

"Myreille Bédard provides a light bossa nova with just a touch of chanson hidden away inside. Polémil Bazar successfully mixes klezmer aesthetics with a trippy circus sound, and after one of the most traditional (and almost Celtic) pieces on the album from La Bottine Souriante, the set closes with a different, more French-influenced traditional sound courtesy of Le Vent du Nord's accordion, violin, and hurdy-gurdy. Where many Québecois compilations would have you believe that Quebec is all French cafés and extended chansons, this album makes a good show of the range of sounds, including much of the contemporary styling of the province."—All Music Guide
