Sunday Surprise: Florent Volant
I just stumbled across thie person the other day and have listened, so far, to but two of his songs. Perhaps they would be mundane if they were in English, but they aren't. Perhaps they would be mundane if he were a yank or maybe from Tennessee, but he isn't. Here's a bit of the wiki on him:
Florent Vollant (born August 10, 1959 in Labrador) is a Canadian singer-songwriter. An Innu from Maliotenam, Quebec, he was half of the popular folk music duo Kashtin, one of the most important musical groups in First Nations history. He has subsequently released four solo albums.
In 1997, Vollant built his own recording studio – Makusham – on the reserve which is used by musicians inside and outside the community. His solo album Puamuna, which means dreams in Innu, was the first time Vollant recorded a full album in his own studio. His Innu-language album of Christmas songs, Nipaiamianan, earned him an apostolic blessing from Pope John Paul II, as well as the Juno Award for Aboriginal Recording of the Year in 2001
