24 Nov: Sara Abou Mrad: A genius of Lebanese painting

Dear readers,

I present to you a Lebanese artist and sculptor who I really like and who deserves real recognition for her work. Her works are inspired by different sources including literature. With her art, Sara transgresses the boundaries of the traditional painting genre to allow her inner projection and her artistic vision to emerge. We are witnessing a rewriting of sensations. Seeing a painting by Sara Abou Mrad is a liberating experience. For a moment, we forget the rules of painting and the codification induced by academicism.

08 Dec: Waahli – The generosity of an engaged artist

If that nice face with a deep look reminds you of something, well, you have surely seen him at Montreal Jazz Festival, during a performance he gave at Télé-Quebec’s program Belle et Bum, or even watched one of his clips on TV5. One who knows well Québec’s Hip-Hop is already aware that artist Waahli AKA Wyzah has dropped his latest album, called Soap Box, last September. This album is a tribute to his precious Haitian roots, passed down by his parents coming from Haiti to settle in Montreal. If January overshadows your mental health, I offer you this powerful prescription stained with Creole and Latin notes, a groovy that makes you want to dance and the soul that will allow you to break free. His lyrics will intrigue you, as it is one of Hip-Hop’s goals to use musical rhythm to convey its messages.
