MAZ

BIOGRAPHY

With no less than 13 nominations for Chasse-Galerie and Télescope, MAZ launches a third album in 2017, entitled ID. In a flow of trad, jazz and electro, the Montreal based group juggles with musical creation and tradition. Their IDs are sung and danced – they speak to heart, body and soul – withtout losing the mind! On stage, MAZ takes you on a musical journey that renews with Quebec’s heritage, where songs and instrumentals open up to new groovy perspectives. Keyboards and electric guitar meet up with fiddle, banjo, double bass and voices, over blazing Quebecois foot tapping and electro beats. This year, the band will be featured in many industry events, both at home and abroad, including WOMEX 17 in Poland.​
