Les Tireux d'Roches WOMEX showcase

Since 1998, Canada’s TDR (Les Tireux d’Roches) has been electrifying crowds with their unique sound and stage performances. They have toured extensively in Canada, the U.S.A, Europe and China winning over the hearts of audiences wherever they go. In recent years they have garnered a reputation as great communicators—they always make an effort to learn the language of their current host and have fun using it on stage. Hailing from a region overflowing with creativity, this motley crew of colourful characters draws from the rich Québécois tradition while staying open to other musical influences such as jazz and rock. They play on an unconventional arsenal of acoustic instruments and the result is an explosive folk/trad party that’ll make you dance and knock your socks off!
