MONTREAL, June 19 /CNW Telbec/ - After the success earlier this month of
DJ Champion at the Musée d'art contemporain Nocturnes, the museum will play
host to modern and traditional percussion by the ensembles Blandiloquentia and
Guemilere for an evening wired to the beat of DruMystique on Friday, July 6.
This live musical performance-with both electrofunk and Afro-Cuban
roots-will feature BLANDILOQUENTIA, a duo made up of Joannie Labelle (congas,
bongos, shereke, djembé, derbouka, surdos and batas) and Merlin Ettore (drums,
but most untraditional!), and the GUEMILERE ensemble of Joannie Labelle
(voice), Luca Perluzzo-Massad, Normand Bock, Lisa Shalom and Tania Gonzalez
Nocturnes is the brand-new concept developed by the Musée d'art
contemporain. On the first Friday of every month, the museum will be open
late, from 6 to 9, for an evening where you can expect the unexpected. Visit
the galleries on your own, or enjoy exhibition "clips": speed tours of a
random selection of works currently on view, plus live music and bar: original
drinks concocted by Mixoart & Fluid Flair.
Nocturnes: a different way to visit the museum and connect with today's
No reservation necessary. Admission with regular Musée ticket or our new
$10 Wired card. Information: myspace.com/fridaynocturnes or www.macm.org.
