French Canadian Power Trio – Québécois music, song and foot percussion
Genticorum is a popular traditional Québécois musical trio based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada with Pascal Gemme playing fiddle, vocals and foot percussion, Yann Falquet on guitar, and vocals and Nicholas Williams playing accordion and flute. Their newest CD, Avant L’Orage was recently released in 2018. “This is yet another splendid album from Quebec’s premier traditional musicians; serious and light-hearted, foot-tapping and singalong” – R2 Magazine
Over the past 18 years this traditional Quebec trio has become a fixture on the international world, trad, folk and Celtic music circuit. The bands six albums have met with critical acclaim in Canada, the United States and Europe, assuring the band a brilliant future. Known for its energy and its stage presence, Genticorum has given more than 800 concerts in more than 15 countries!
Firmly rooted in the soil of their native land, the energetic and original traditional power trio also incorporates the dynamism of today’s North American and European folk cultures in their music. They weave precise and intricate fiddle, flute and accordion work, gorgeous vocal harmonies, energetic foot percussion and guitar accompaniment into a big and jubilant musical feast. Their distinctive sound, sense of humor and stage presence makes them a supreme crowd pleaser.
