Excavation & poésie offers traditional anarchist music that makes you want to heal the wounds of humanity with a jig and a bastringue. Climate emergency, capitalism and obsessive growth, ageist neglect, police brutality, vulnerability and humility: these musician-activists excavate many subjects.
Whether harmonizing their voices in protest against inequality, Excavation & Poésie will have you dancing and thinking in an atmosphere reminiscent of the holiday season, when we really can’t wait to get back to our families and old friends.
Founded in 2018 in a spirit of collective revolt, Excavation & poésie has quickly carved out a place for itself on the emerging Quebec scene. After a mini album, a poetry collection on bookstore shelves, an eponymous beer, and over a hundred shows across Quebec, both in the bush of environmental protests and on the stages of major venues and festivals, the FRIMAT 2021-winning band launched its first full-length album on March 10: Ranger l’hiver. Their eponymous song won the Hydro Québec song award, and the band also won the MaTV best performance award for their appearance in the semi-finals of Ma Première Place des Arts.
