Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

LE VENT DU NORD

LA PART DU FEU

2009-11-02

Le Vent Du Nord has been described as one of the hippest exports from the music scene in Quebec. Combining original and traditional folk tunes all done in French, this band will certainly have a multi-cultural appeal. Along with the traditional French folk lore, the listener will certainly find large amounts of Celtic influences as well as dabbling in some country sounds that keeps their sound fresh and keep the boots on the dance floor through all 13 tracks. In addition to the excellent musicianship the 4 part harmonies are a real treat even if you are like me and don’t understand a single word of French. This Juno award winning band is sure to grow their world wide appeal with this fine effort. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
