Quebecois: Genticorum and "Le Pommeau"



Today's random song is from Canada - Quebec to be exact. Genticorum is a traditional musical trio from Montreal where each member provides percussion by clogging. They fuse modern composition of their own with elements of classic folk and Celtic music. The members came together through a love of French Canadian fiddle tunes and folk music. Their name comes from a word that one member of the trio remembers his grandfather singing, though he does not know the meaning. They sing all of their songs in French. This song, Le Pommeau, can be found on their 2009 album La Bibournoise.
