IBRAHIM MAALOUF et les trompettes de Michel Ange (T.O.M.A.,)
Philosophically, historically and musically, T.O.M.A., for Trumpets of Michel Ange, is an adventure that sets course for a world where folklore and modernity are the same. With a line-up of nine instrumentalists, including five trumpeters, Ibrahim Maalouf's music is sophisticated, demanding and accessible to the widest possible audience. Based on jazz, pop, world music and urban music, T.O.M.A. transcends all genres, bringing together all generations and all styles. Ibrahim Maalouf has laid the cornerstone of an ambitious life project that aims to unite us all around shared values.
Dominique Fils Aimé – Roots
She mentions Billie Holiday, Etta James and Nina Simone as her greatest influences. Although her roots are rooted in the soul and jazz of the time, her branches wander freely through an urban, contemporary soundscape.
A semi-finalist on The Voice Québec (2015), she won over audiences with her authenticity and suave voice.
Her solo album Nameless (2018) has been very well received by the media. In it, she pays tribute to African-American music of the early 20th century.
Dominique Fils-Aimé returns to the stage to present her new album OurRoots Run Deep (September 2023). After exploring her African-American musical influences, this new, more intimate show invites us to explore the roots of her soul. She shares with us her desire to connect with herself, her musicians and her audience. The Montreal-born singer-songwriter captivates us with her enchanting timbre and her poetic, empathetic delivery.
