And thus, since the founding of l'ensemble Cercamon at the turn of the century, this trio of musicians has succeeded in developing a most original style of music. Their creations exploit exceptional tones, produced by instruments from other periods and other lands, oriental as well as occidental. Hurdy-gurdy, oud, rauschpfeife, saz and bouzouki...all working together to yield a truly novel blend of music.
Cercamon's energetic interpretation of musical works and songs drawn from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance Era attracts large crowds. To these works represented from the past, the Ensemble adds its own compositions, bringing fresh new life to the music, and bringing music-lovers to their feet, dancing at festivals and other public events throughout Quebec, USA and elsewhere in the world.
Their exotically tinged compositions have energized choreographic creations, and have been used as sound tracks for several documentaries. Many of the Ensemble's creations have already been compiled on three albums.
