Traditional Quebcois folk song
Perfomers: Les Charbonniers de l'Enfer
The Canadaphilia I have experienced over the past several years most definitely extends to music. In particular, I have grown quite fond of Quebecois folk music, known as chansons. The songs date back centuries, some of them probably back to France, though the style is different from that of the Acadians in Nova Scotia and the Cajuns in Louisiana. Les Charbonniers de l'Enfer is one of many groups to have inspired renewed enthusiasm for Quebecois chansons, Le Vent du Nord probably the most prominent these days. I prefer the more traditional, a cappella performance style.
