Gordon Grdina's Haram -- Vancouver, BC
Haram est un grand ensemble dédié à l’exploration de musiques égyptiennes et iraquiennes mené par le compositeur et guitariste Gordon Grdina qui troque sa guitare pour le oud pour cet ensemble. Grdina s’est entouré de la crème de la crème de la scène de musique expérimentale de Vancouver avec JP Carter, Jesse Zubot, François Houle, Chris Kelly, Liam MacDonald, Emad Armoush, Tommy Babin et Kenton Loewen. Ancré dans la tradition sans toutefois s’empêcher d’explorer de nouveaux territoires sonores, Haram joue une musique nouvelle et toute en beauté. 
Haram is a large ensemble dedicated to exploring Egyptian and Iraqi music led by composer and guitarist Gordon Grdina who trades his guitar for oud for this special endeavour. Grdina has surrounded himself by a who’s who of Vancouver’s creative music scene. While invested in tradition, Haram also explores new sonic territories, creating beautiful new music. 

Kaze -- Japan/France 
Kaze est un quatuor de jazz d’avant-garde réunissant Satoko Fujii et Natsuki Tamura du Japon et Christian Pruvost et Peter Orins de France. Avec deux trompettistes, une pianiste et un batteur, le groupe sort des chantiers battus avec une proposition radicale bien musclée. 
Kaze is an avant-garde jazz quartet uniting Japan’s Satoko Fujii and Natsuki Tamura with France’s Christian Pruvost and Peter Orins. With two trumpeters, a pianist and a drummer, Kaze leaves behind old habits with a radical proposition that is powerfully executed.

Natsuki Tamura – trumpet
Christian Pruvost – trumpet
Satoko Fujii – piano
Peter Orins– drums

Melodic, abstract, mysterious, beautiful, and confrontational, Kaze plays free jazz at its most creative and powerful. The members of this international quartet share an insatiable appetite for sonic experimentation, boundless energy and enthusiasm, and the disciplined intelligence of accomplished spontaneous composers. 
The group has released three acclaimed recordings - 2011’s Rafale, 2013’s Tornado, and 2015’s Uminari which the London Jazz News calls “...bold, uncompromising music." Uminari is a Japanese word that refers to a sound rising from the sea, a low-frequency roar that portends a coming storm or tsunami. The two-horn quartet is equally adept at the calm and the storm, with expressive subtleties giving way to overwhelming torrents of sound
“… one of the most musically dynamic and intense "jazz" sets of the year… If you think you can imagine what piano, drums, and two trumpets will sound like, think again.” — Derk Richardson, KPFA Radio
