Bon Débarras is the result of the unexpected meeting of three dynamic creators involved in music, dance and poetry. The trio opens a door to their recollections of America and their music is at the intersection of various traditions. Their energy taps into the rhythms of today and ventures boldly on the multi-faceted road to tomorrow’s dreams...

Folklore (from folk, meaning “people,” and lore, meaning “knowledge”) refers to all collective productions by the people that are orally transmitted from generation to generation (tales, stories, songs) or through example (music, dance, rites, beliefs, savoir-faire). Folklore defines who we are and traces our origins. Bon Débarras’ inspiration comes from their home base, Montreal, one of the most cosmopolitan cities in North America. While remaining true to their roots, the three musicians, who are equally passionate about music, dance and poetry, are drawing on living traditions and various influences to explore new avenues.
