Oriental Blue
"Oriental Blue" is the latest project of Montreal-based, Israeli-French acoustic guitarist Samuel Bonnet. Made of ten original compositions specifically written for his group, it takes the audience on a poetic journey inspired by different musical traditions form the Middle-East, North-Africa, Europe (Flamenco, Klezmer, Gnawa…) and the Americas (Jazz, Latin…), tracing a parallel between the jazz-blues characteristic melodic inflection : the « blue note » and its oriental cousin : the "melisma".
But this project also has a visual dimension, as « Oriental Blue » designates a color : the «ultramarine» blue, made from the Lapis-Lazuli, a precious stone.prized by painters and jewellers since antiquity for its intensity.
Distinguished by an acoustic and intimate format, the Samuel Bonnet Project has performed concerts and tours in Canada, France, USA and Israel, and has notably been selected, among 9 pan-Canadian emerging bands, to be part of the 2016 Grand Prix Jazz TD competition, playing an outdoor show at the 2016 Montreal International Jazz Festival.
Featuring tenor & sop sax Mathias Wallerand from France.

Mauro Scatozza
Swirling soundscapes and intense percussion, using a mix of digital synths and acoustic drums, drummer/producer Mauro Scatozza performs an electronic orchestral musical piece intentionally written for film.
He will perform this live soundtrack as a solo artist, but will sound as if an entire orchestra is on stage.
Sol the Violinist
Live shows consisting of a looping violin, beatboxing, a trumpet.
Sol has played violin since he was a child and convinced his mother to let him try the instrument. From that point, he was trained in a multitude of styles, and has finally settled into writing and composing his own pieces.
He incorporates the rhythmic roots elements of beatboxing which gives his music a very grounded sound, while simultaneously soaring through the clouds of perception.
Kimberly Sunstrum
Afro-Canadian singer-songwriter Kimberly Sunstrum's sound is a reflection of her culturally diverse family background and musical upbringing.
She grew up listening to old-time country music, South African pop hits, American folk and classic R&B. Blending powerful vocal ability, heart-felt lyricism and skillful instrumental compositions, Sunstrum's performances are energetic and accessible while still conveying an intimate and soulful connection to the listener.
