A Salute to Music City Montreal

As South Londoner and modern soul hero Sampha (“Close But Not Quite”) conquers my speakers, it’s time to relativize and dream. Music is a common love for most of our human fellows, and maybe even other species can enjoy music to the same extent. But, I don’t want to generalize. A recent Harvard study showed that only 50% of people get goosebumps while listening to music. You, for 50 percent sure know those moments. These moments where you want to drown in time, and when those soundscapes and music work to its climax; this perfect symbiosis between chords, vocals, and other sounds. That moment where everything comes together. But, there is a big but, it’s not only about the music: it’s about your ability to imagine, to dream away, to emphasize and embrace the story behind it. Your story. And in this case, Montreal’s story.

Dutchie at the Festival international de jazz de Montréal

What can you expect from the Festival international de jazz de Montréal when you're used to the North Sea Jazz Festival? This question popped into my head a few months ago when I boarded a transatlantic flight that would bring me to Montreal. This city, known for its chilly winters, boasts a legendary festival season that culminates in the Festival international de jazz de Montréal.
