Justine — Canada 1997

Justine’s big Canadian tour. In a little less than a month, the quartet will perform nine concerts in five different provinces. The cities on the tour are: Guelph, Kingston, Toronto, Hamilton, Victoria, Vancouver, Edmonton, Regina and Halifax.

Improvised rock, punk-jazz, post-modern ethnic: Justine’s music is hybrid in nature. From jig to digital, from tango to noise, the band serves up an assemblage of sonic layers and musical chunks. A textured sound in which soul is expressed through synthetic instruments and surprising twists.

Justine can easily switch from instrumental tunes to songs. Lyrics are half playful, half metaphorical, sweet, and activist. Four voices, each with its own hues, contribute their rough, light, chanted and whispered tones to the message.
