BIOGRAPHY - part 1 of 2

 

Acadian powerhouse trio Vishtèn has been recognized worldwide as an ambassador of francophone culture. The Canadian band has dazzled audiences with its fiery blend of traditional French songs and original instrumentals that fuse Celtic and Acadian genres with a modern rock sensibilities and indie-folk influences.

With members hailing from Prince Edward Island’s Evangeline region and the most remote reaches of Québec – the windswept Magdalen Islands – twin sisters Emmanuelle and Pastelle LeBlanc join musical forces with Pascal Miousse to create a sophisticated sonic signature that combines tight vocal harmonies, layered foot percussion, and virtuoso acoustic instrumentation. Their trademark blend of fiddle, guitar, accordion, octave mandolin, whistles, piano, bodhrán, jaw harp and percussive dance result in a tour de force of traditional and contemporary music.
