Genticorum / Press

"The 'power trio' of Quebec traditional music!" Genticorum was founded in 2000, when Pascal Gemme (fiddle, feet, and vocals), Yann Falquet (guitar, Jew's harp, and vocals), and Alexandre de Grosbois-Garand (wooden flute, electric bass, and vocals) discovered a mutual love for the curious Quebec dish called poutine (French fries soaked in hot gravy and cheese curds) and French Canadian fiddle tunes. Now, they say, they like shawarma too, and they've added some elements of contemporary composition to their music. After three albums and tours of more than 15 countries (including Egypt and Malaysia), they've become among the most sought-after ambassadors of Quebecois musical culture. Weaving wooden flute, fiddle, acoustic guitar, jaw harp, bass, and foot percussion with strong three-part vocal harmonies, they produce a brilliant tapestry. Get a glimpse into the spirited world of Quebec's traditional music from a real "power trio" that knows how to do it right!
