À propos / About

Horizons présente une combinaison de compositions originales qui, fidèle au style de Vishtèn, fusionnent les genres musicaux actuels et traditionnels, ainsi que les textes et mélodies traditionnels acadiens. Le rythme contagieux de la podorythmie et de la turlutte de Vishtèn continue à fusionner sans effort avec le violon, la guitare, l’accordéon, la mandoline, les flûtes, le piano, le bodhrán et la guimbarde, offrant une expérience musicale qui illustre leur vision des sons traditionnels. Pour ce nouvel album, les artistes ont choisi d’aller plus loin en proposant de nouveaux instruments tels que la guitare électrique et le piano, des jigs étendus et des mélodies accrocheuses dans une variété de styles, tout en conservant leur son habituel.

Horizons features a combination of original compositions that, faithful to Vishtèn’s signature style, amalgamate current and traditional musical genres, as well as traditional Acadian texts and tunes. The contagious rhythm of Vishtèn’s foot percussion and mouth music continue to merge effortlessly with the violin, guitar, accordion, mandolin, flutes, piano, bodhrán, and jaw harp, offering a musical experience that illustrates their vision of the world all while demonstrating the richness of traditional sounds. For this new album, the artists have chosen to go one step further by featuring new instruments such as the electric guitar and piano as well as extended jigs and catchy song melodies in a variety of styles, all while maintaining their usual rooted sound.

“An amalgam of music from their different cultural roots –Acadian, Mi’kmaq, Irish, Scottish, and Breton – wrapped in a bright paper that has the heft of tradition but the exuberance of pop.” RobWeir, Sing Out!
