The delicate chemical reaction that would create the boldly named group Wondeur Brass took place in the fall of 1980. After a few concerts, including one at the Polonaise Hall for the Montréal-based Librairie des femmes’ 5th anniversary, the city’s first-ever all-women band chose its orientation and settled its line-up. Their music is wild, with strong currents of traditional and fanfare music, and a tendency to experiment. Instruments used belong mostly to the brass family.
