Since 2010, each year the Festival d’été francophone de Vancouver has hosted an artist-in-residence project that brings together two groups of musicians, one from Quebec, the other from British Columbia. Together, they create new arrangements and even completely new works, based on the creative encounter of their individual repertoires. This two-day artistic residence is followed by a series of free public concerts. For this 27th edition, the Festival d’été francophone de Vancouver is presenting a unique encounter in world music with two groups that explore connections between several musical origins, in particular from Asian countries. This year, we are very pleased to twin the very talented Huu Bac Quintet, based in Montreal, and the JouTou ensemble, who have chosen British Columbia as their home base. The artistic residence will take place on June 21 and 22, and three free world-premiere performances will follow on June 23, 24 and 25.
