DE TEMPS ANTAN

Les Habits De Papier

2010-10-25

Les Habits De Papier is the second album from Quebecois folk band De Temps Antan. Integrating traditional folk instruments such as the fiddle and accordion with voice and les pieds (a type of seated clogging found only in French Canada), De Temps Antan makes traditional-sounding folk music. Featuring some instrumentals and some songs with lyrics, the French call-and-response vocals add and orthodox feel while maintaining a general levity to both the original and the traditional compositions.
