Alexandre Désilets | Programmateur invité | Février 2019

Alexandre Désilets est certainement l’une des voix les plus imposantes par son infini tendresse. Il est un mélodiste sensible qui sait créer une poésie moderne avec des mots savamment choisis. L’auteur-compositeur-interprète a fait vibrer le public plus d’une fois avec ses albums qu’Escalader l’ivresse (2008), La Garde (2010), Fancy Ghetto (2014) et Windigo (2016). Ce dernier lui a valu deux Félix au gala de l’ADISQ 2017. Son inspiration s’enracine dans toutes les possibilités qu’offre le corps, le cœur et l’esprit.
