Super Plage's live performances are an explosion of summery electropop, infectious and wild joy. Surrounded by his fellow musicians, including the captivating Virginie B, Jules Henry patrols his keys while maintaining a symbiotic connection with his audience. He presents tracks from his latest album, "Magie à minuit" (Magic at Midnight), released last March. The show promises to make both young and old dance and dream, momentarily transporting them to a sun-drenched Southern destination where it's good to party (with or without a microdose).
Undoubtedly, HAWA B (real name Nadia Hawa Baldé) knows how to command a stage, having shared it with Hubert Lenoir and Les Louanges in the past year. The singer-songwriter now presents her solo project, aiming to push boundaries by offering innovative music. A blend of neo-soul, alternative rock, and modern jazz can be heard in her sound. HAWA B has created her own musical universe to depict sadness in a positive light, hence the title of her first EP, "Sad in a Good Way," which earned her a nomination at the Gala Dynastie. As a young black woman, she takes pride in creating songs that break stereotypes about women and artists of color by reclaiming alternative rock. She is now co-producing her second EP with producer Félix Petit, set to be released soon.
Since delivering their first verses at Parc Laurier in their teenage years, the members of LaF (short for "La Famille," which means "The Family" in French) have been offering a kind rap with catchy melodies that leave few people indifferent. With their ambitious latest album, the excellent CHROME, the sextet formed by three MCs and three DJs has certainly risen in stature since their victory at the prestigious showcase competition Les Francouvertes, in 2018. The release of their album "Citadelle" in 2019 and their EP "Soin Entreprise" in 2020 solidify LaF's status as the flag-bearers of Montreal's alternative rap scene.
