The Oumigmag is first and foremost “musk ox” in Inuktitut, a distant and mysterious animal that lives on the edge of reality near the Arctic Circle. It is also six seasoned and inventive musicians brought together by the composer, poet and guitarist Sébastien Sauvageau since spring 2015. Their research: to be inhabited by the strong force of the Oumigmag. A force that lies between contemplation and spontaneous gesture. Their musical and poetic universe takes root in traditional music and contemporary jazz. Whether in finely composed moments or fiery improvisations, soul and heart meet for a unique musical moment.
This project is supported by the Quebec Council of Arts and Letters and
