In music and images

The song "Nutshimit" is a meeting between Bon Débarras’ music and Joséphine Bacon’s poetry. "Nutshimit" refers to the inland in Innu-aimun; it’s also Joséphine Bacon’s favorite word.

Over the past few weeks, the members of the group have felt the need to do something together, despite the distance. They have therefore taking up the challenge of mastering in an artistic way their cell phone cameras and sound recording techniques, with the good advice and the remote support of Goba Studio team and the sound engineer Louis Morneau. The result is this beautiful video that leaves us with a feeling of sweet serenity.

A new EP for Bon Débarras

The group Bon Débarras couldn’t wait to share with you a part of their creation work of the past months. Their brand new digital minialbum, “Repaires”, is a prelude to a full album to be released in Septembre 2020. The project will highlight the reference points, cues, landmarks, core values - which are called “repères” in French - that Bon Débarras has relied on for its creative process since its beginnings as a band. Identity bearings, geographical markers, linguistic and cultural reference points, yes – but they rely also on various inner hideouts, dens or “repaires”, multifaceted references forged through encounters, travels and life experiences. Their repères – milestones and markers – anchor solidly the band’s music in Quebec traditions while giving it a touch of the world around the corner. From their repaires – hideaways, havens of refuge –, they come out with a renewed energy irresistibly calling for dancing!

Le loup de Noël

On Tour

Now that fall is here, Bon Débarras is getting ready for the 4th season of the show Le loup de Noël. With the storyteller Stephan Côté, the group will make you live the story of Griboux an old lonesome Laurentian wolf who has nothing to eat. Hungry, he goes down to the village on Christmas Eve, where he is attracted by the church lights… A story that brings us back to those times when the midnight mass and the « réveillon » were at the heart of the Christmas holidays.
