Guilbeault, Normand: Riel, Plaidoyer Musical / Musical Plea [2 CDs] (Ambiances Magnetiques)
Label: Ambiances Magnetiques    
Released in: Canada    

"On the eve of the 114th anniversary of the hanging of the Franco-Manitoban Métis leader Louis Riel in Regina on 16 November 1885, double bass player Normand Guilbeault is launching his 2-CD work entitled Riel, Plaidoyer musical / Musical Plea, recorded in February at the Lion d’Or in Montréal.
The result of four years of diligent research, Riel, Plaidoyer musical / Musical Plea sheds new light on one of the little-known and most controversial episodes in Canadian history.
With Riel, Plaidoyer musical / Musical Plea, Normand Guilbeault and his large group of outstanding musicians invite us to discover a historical and musical epic set on the Manitoban frontier. Original compositions, native chants, gigues, reels, songs of the period, military marches and improvisation are woven to create the fabric of a vibrant work that combines politics and poetry. Music, chants, political texts and poetry surprise, delight and assert without compromise."-Ambiances Magnetique
