Wondeur Brass: Simoneda, reine des esclaves — Montréal

Simoneda 1: Back in Canada from a tour of the Balkans, Wondeur Brass presents a new repertoire with Slavic colours and an evermore rebel sound: “Simoneda, reine des esclaves”. With this group of songs, the only brass left in Wondeur Brass is in the band’s name. Through the years, the quartet - now Joane Hétu, Diane Labrosse, Danielle Palardy Roger and Marie Trudeau - has turned its back on fanfare music to foray into new music and avant-rock. The four musicians have kicked the energy levels up a few notches.
