CD celebrates 400 years of Quebec City

Photo by Sue Frause

In honor of Quebec City's 400th anniversary, a new CD issued by Putumayo World Music titled Quebec was produced as "a celebration of the rich musical diversity of this fascinating French Canadian province."

A friend from Montreal recently gave me the CD and it's lovely -- just like Quebec City. Sadly, I won't be attending any of the 400th anniversary festivities in Quebec City, which you can read about on a special website.

I'll just sit back with a tall glass of pink lemonaide and listen to the following artists who are featured on the Quebec CD:

Mathieu Mathieu, DobaCaracol, Martin Leon, Annie Villeneuve, Chloe Sainte-Marie, Florent Vallant, Marie-Annick Lepine, Mureille Bedard, Polemil Bazar, La Bottine Souriante, Le Vent Du Nord.

Even their names are lovely.

Viva Quebec City!
