Bon Débarras en famille results from a tremendous desire to gather again between all those who made up the various trios over the fifteen years of the band's existence. So, Luzio Altobelli, Cédric Dind-Lavoie and Marie-Pierre Lecault joined the present trio to revisit pieces that were meaningful for each of the family members – pieces and songs from their four career albums. In an affectionate atmosphere of sharing and celebration, new versions emerged during these unique intimate moments. Now played by the six musicians, they appear on Bon Débarras en famille, an album available on May 19 on CD and on the digital services. A limited edition vinyl will also be available this summer.
Bon Débarras en famille is also a web series available on the Ondapart cultural platform (ondapart.com). Built around one of the songs, each of the seven episodes is shot in a different location. They also feature original interviews and moments of fun and sharing.
In the show J’m’en viens chez vous!, which means "We're coming up!", the trio Bon Débarras demystifies the raw material from which the members of the group create: Traditional Québec music and its unique features.
They begin by explaining the fundamentals of this musical style drawn from the roots of our culture. They even reveal the workings of their own creative complicity and invite young and old to have fun with this raw material. And everything becomes an endearing pretext to exchange and meet.
The show will be presented to music professionals at RIDEAU in Quebec City on February 16, and will then take the road in 2023-2024. An English version should be ready for 2024.
Bon Débarras is proud to be finalist for the Opus Award Concert de l’année – Musique traditionnelle québécoise with the show Repères. The Gala, held by the Conseil québécois de la musique, will be presented on February 5.
