"It's feel-good music that transcends any lyric and the chance to see these merry wizards deliver the goods live is about as good as music gets." - Eric Thom - Roots Music Canada

Genticorum is a popular traditional Québécois trio based in Montreal. The band formed in the autumn of 2000 and since then have become one of the most sought-after proponents of Québécois culture. They weave precise and intricate fiddle and flute work, gorgeous vocal harmonies, energetic foot percussion, and guitar and bass accompaniment into a big and jubilant musical feast. Their distinctive sound, sense of humour and stage presence make them a supreme crowd pleaser.

The trio consists of Pascal Gemme (fiddle, foot percussion), Alexandre de Grosbois-Garand (flute, bass and jaw harp), and Yann Falquet (guitar). Each sings lead and joins in the three-part harmonies. They released their inaugural album, Le Galarneau, in 2002 and since then have produced three critically acclaimed discs; their latest, Nagez Rameurs, in 2011. In the twelve years since their debut, they have been nominated for both Juno and Felix Awards, earned four Canadian Folk Music Awards, showcased at WOMEX and played the biggest music festivals in more than 18 countries.

"For a three-piece, Genticorum makes a very full and glorious noise, both instrumentally and vocally ... This is a band that's going to go places." - Chris Nickson - Sing Out!
