La Bottine Souriante

La Bottine SourianteFrom Canada

"One of the best live acts of this universe." Folk World, Germany

Living legends of French Canadian roots music.

Their pulsating rhythm, exuberant spirit and turbulent energy will send you reeling. Quebec's La Bottine Souriante is considered to be the tightest and most exciting French Canadian roots band on the planet. They've sold over half a million albums, won dozens of awards and headlined festivals around the world. Paying homage to tradition, with a saucy dash of jazz, salsa and pure folk, they’ll 'reel' you in with their exceptional vitality. Come and see why US-based magazine Dirty Linen proclaimed La Bottine Souriante "The best band in the world"!
