On Friday, November 25, 8 pm AST, Sirens will premiere its latest music video!
Filmed at the historic Glenaladale House in Mount Stewart, PE in September 2022, our performance of “Turlutte acadienne montréalaise” is imagined through the artistic vision of award-winning Island filmmaker, Millefiore Clarke.
By Canadian composer Marie-Claire Saindon “Turlutte acadienne montréalaise” captures the traditional Acadian and Québécois musical practice of the “turlutte” or mouth reel. Voices mimic fiddle reel melodies, while adding foot percussion or “podorythmie” in this lively piece. Mouth music has been a staple at kitchen parties across Atlantic Canada’s Acadian communities for generations.
You’ll find “Turlutte acadienne montréalaise” on Sirens’ debut album, Boundless, released in 2020.
We hope you enjoy this Sirens kitchen party – catch the video premiere at the link below!
This recording and video were made possible thanks to the support of FACTOR and the government of Canada.
