Their music plunges the listener into an infinite panorama of colours and grooves with inviting beauty, intuition, dreams, mystery, transe and poetry. Marianne Trudel offers up a whole new cycle of compositions that are both pared down and refined, mysterious and enticing. Where catchy grooves, enchanting melodies, surprising sonorities, and joyous spontaneity go hand in hand.
