CAPSULE SKIP THE USE & DIMIDOU 

This stage features the famous French rock band Skip the Use and the illustrator and animator Dimidou. In this video Dimidou brings his avatar to life by animating him to the music of Skip the Use. It will be an artistic performance mixing acoustic music with illustration and 3D animation. This original video is created for International Music Day only and will allow you to dive into the universe of these two artists and to understand the artistic collaboration between music and drawing.

CAPSULE LORRAINE KLAASEN & VIDU

This stage takes us into the musical world of Lorraine Klaasen, a great diva who has preserved the classic sound of Township Music (a fusion of Marabi, jazz and Zulu beats) that continues to be South Africa's most distinctive sound. Lorraine Klaasen electrified audiences around the world with her stage presence and performance skills.

Inspired by Klaasen's universe, illustrator Vidu will make us discover his visual world. This vignette highlights a long-distance collaboration between a French artist and a Canadian artist.

CAPSULE PATRICE CABLAT & SAKAY OTTAWA, SAKHIUS  

MIKWETC was born from the encounter between Atikamekw artist Sakay Ottawa and Sakhius, a trio with French and Mongolian roots. To the call of the Earth, these three cultures respond with a unique musical collaboration, between drums and diphonic songs, sublimated by the illustrations of the French artist Patrice Cablat. A song in unison to celebrate the Earth and thank the ancestors for keeping the culture alive. Go behind the scenes of this project initiated as part of 2021 International Music Day to honour National Aboriginal Peoples Day.
