Alhamdulillah - Montreal Music Scene Zindabad

Catherine Potter - Bansuri
Zal Idrissa Sissokho - Kora
Jean Marc Hebert - Guitar
Subir Dev - Tabla
Nicolas Caloia - Double Bass
Thom Gossage - Drums

A special night when a group of Montealers were introduced to the Kora and the particularly delightful playing of the instrument by Zal Idrissa Sissokho, our guest artist from Africa. The fusion of the Bansuri and Kora went down just perfectly with the tabla and the double bass. Magic was in the air and all in the audience had smiles on their faces as well as warm smiling hearts within.

Of course we owe a debt of gratitude to Catherine Potter and the Duniya Project. Alhamdulillah indeed for the music scene of Montreal. What a wonderful evening of music that was.

Martine Koutnouyan and Joseph Lefevre enhanced the experience with their visuals and video that was created for each piece of music. You did a splendid job with the moving images!!
