December 10 (online) – Joane Hétu Register here

It has been more than 30 years now since self-taught composer, vocalist and saxophonist Joane Hétu has been following her own highly distinctive path through the vast territory of creative, contemporary music. From her beginnings with song-based new-rock bands such as Wondeur BrassJustine and Les PoulesHétu turned to composition (the evocative triptych comprising Musique d’hiverFilature and La femme territoire ou 21 fragments d’humus) and improvisation, more often than not combining both within her general approach to music. She has co-directed the Ensemble SuperMusique since its founding in 1998, as well as the weekly series Mercredimusics since 2002. supermusique.qc.ca/en/artistes
