Montreal International Jazz Festival

Fronted by five voices, Nomadic Massive is a polyglot combo that raps in English, French, Spanish, Créole and Arabic, combining samples and traditional influences to enhance tracks steeped in soul, reggae and Afro-Caribbean rhythms. It’s a joyously explosive hip-hop crossbreed that always gets the crowd jumping.  They will perform on July 5th and 6th at the the Savoy de Métropolis from 12AM to 3AM.

Festival Diapason

Timber Timbre is a Canadian folk music led by the wonderfully talented Taylor Kirk. Their sound has been described as “beautifully restrained blues from an alternate universe”, which creates an atmosphere that is cinematic and spooky. They will perform outdoors at the Berge des Baigneurs in Laval on July 9th from 9:30PM to 11:00PM.

Note: the STL will provide free shuttle buses between metro station Montmorency to the Berge des Baigneurs at 6:30PM and 7:30PM and between the venue back to the metro station at 11:30PM after the show.
