After a memorable television performance and two nominations at the most recent Gala Country, the Canadian trad-country band Sugar Crush is back with its version of Ziguezon. For this project, the duo, composed of Joanie Charron and Marie-Soleil Provost, worked with the renowned Quebec DJ Quest. The song arrives on the air just in time for the big festivities at the end of the year.
“There is a beautiful richness of rhythm in traditional Quebec music. We wanted to give this piece a new momentum and introduce it to the next generation. “ – Sugar Crush
Directed by André Papanicolaou (Vincent Vallières, Pierre Flynn), the EP En français S.V.P. include the original version of Ziguezon. For the remix, the two acolytes were inspired by their idols. “The music of La Bottine Souriante inspires us a lot and also reminds us of good festive moments when people gathered to sing the famous songs. In this spirit, and to keep the DNA of the song alive, we collaborated with David Boulanger, one of La Bottine’s violinists. He was very excited to rediscover a song he performed hundreds of times on stage,” said Joanie and Marie-Soleil. Several renowned contributors have contributed to the EP including Steve Mandile, director of superstar Tim McGraw. The latter worked with the two accomplices of the duo to target the sound and color of the opus.
