With an official WOMEX17 selection and 16 top Canadian award nominations, MAZ’s music has proven its category-defying appeal. With their third album ID (idea), they celebrate Quebec’s traditional music while embracing modern streams in a flow of folk, jazz and electro.
“Outstanding musicians, astonishing arrangers. Bold and refined!”
— Laurent Saulnier, MONTREAL INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL
Riding the line between accessible and ambitious, MAZ invites you on a wild ride that has been praised by audiences and critics alike, owing to its vibrant stage energy. Join leader Marc Maziade (electric guitar, banjo, vocals) and his crew Rémi Pagé (violin, foot percussion), Roxane Beaulieu (keyboards, vocals) and Hugo Blouin (double bass) for a moment of complicity and intensity.
A show of heart-warming music, brain-warming songs, jaw-dropping solos, tranceinducing
grooves, engaging soundscapes and frenzied foot stomps. At first described as futuristic with Telescope (2011), MAZ’s music revealed a modern take on Quebec’s instrumental culture.
MAZ presented its concerts in over a hundred performances in Canada, US, Mexico, Ghana, Germany and Poland with the WOMEX-approved ID.
