Gab Paquet
7 pm

Main Stage

There are many ways to describe Gab Paquet - "perfection made man" is just one example - but what you need to know is that this being of sensual excess and spiritual exaltation is first and foremost a bewitching herald with a divine gift for music, and that it's in French songs that he finds a vehicle for his essential messages - a sultry kitsch that's no guilty pleasure.

What we also need to know is that the aforementioned aesthetic and musical codes he employs are enticing lures to draw the public into the dedicated aspect of his artistic approach. His pieces magnanimously offer several levels of understanding, with something for everyone - a laugh, a reflection, an in-depth study, an enlightenment - in ecstatic communion.

Pierre Kwenders
8:30 pm

Main Stage

Born in the Congo and based in Montreal, musician, songwriter and DJ Pierre Kwenders is a storyteller at heart. Motivated by the subtleties of love, his songs weave tales from memories of the past, sketches of his hometown and reflections on the future.

An architect of modern African music, Kwenders creates a unique blend of Afro-influenced electronic sounds inspired by Congolese rumba.

Singing and rapping in Lingala, French, English, Tshiluba and Kikongo, the artist similarly weaves his stories across the boundaries of language and geography.
