MarieVeronique Bourque

Born:

Marie-Véronique (MV) Bourque, an extremely talented artist from Saskatchewan, is not afraid to think and act outside the box. Her original songs and unique interpretations of jazz standards (by flute and voice) pair beautifully with her hard-to- define music genre. Marie-Véronique is a nominee for the 2021 Trille Or Awards Gala, which will take place May 29 at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa. In 2019, MV was brought to Oxford (UK) for a recording session on Will Cox’s debut album, “A Darkling Shore”.

Rues désertes

Featuring the music of MarieVeronique Bourque
Duration: 6:57

I composed Rues désertes in the midst of the pandemic. Isolated in my house in Regina, I imagined the crowded streets of Old Quebec where I come from, completely deserted by tourists and citizens. This image which seemed unreal to me, I gradually gave it meaning. The more I wrote, the more I realized that I had a deep empathy for this city that I was reconnecting with through my mind. Little by little I mourned to find again the streets of before while feeling some comfort. I thought that nothing would be the same across the world, that people had and were going to change just like me, but that a new day was still dawning with its hopes. Rues désertes, it is first of all the tradition of the wooden spoons mixed with that of Morse communications. The old port of Quebec is not far away and reminds us of the history of this city. The acrobats do their pirouettes in front of the amazed children. The artists join the ball: musicians, sculptors and painters or designers. The crowd creates a breaking wave in the streets. The murmur amplifies and becomes sweet harmony. Flute: Marie-Véronique Bourque; Piano: Clément Robichaud; Drums and percussions: Olivier Bussières; Electric bass: Juan Cruz.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
