Esmerine (Montréal)

After Esmerine last appeared at Guelph, their album Dalmak won the 2014 Juno Award for Instrumental Album of the Year. The Montreal cello and marimba / percussion (Rebecca Foon, Bruce Cawdron) duo’s latest album, Lost Voices, is “a beguiling mass of dialed-down post-rock, classical figures and exploratory soundscapes … beyond words, beyond beautiful” (The Skinny). During their 2012 European tour, a reviewer praised Esmerine’s first London performance for the ensemble’s “stunning drawn out beauty … absolutely joyous ….” Lost Voices is their most visceral and soaring work to date, and their Guelph performance is a singular opportunity to hear music that truly “absorbs and surrounds you.”
